Noah Ringer, the unknown who M. Night Shyamalan picked out of thin air in a crazy twist of casting for The Last Airbender, has signed up to join the cast of Cowboys And Aliens, the sci-fi / Western hybrid based on the comic book and directed by Jon Favreau.

Now sure, it's got a name inspired by a million playground mash-up games, but it's not quite that simple. The story of the comic contrasts the aliens' colonial attitudes when they invade the Old West with those of the settlers there towards the Native Americans; it's clever, see? And not just about cowboys and Indians teaming up against flying saucers (which, by the way, AWESOME).

The script was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof, and the film's due out on July 29, 2011 in the US.
