It seems that director Jon Favreau has found one of his Indians for his latest film project. Variety is reporting that actor Adam Beach has signed on for a role in Cowboys and Aliens.

Beach will play Nat Colorado, a half-Apache Indian who works for Harrison Ford's character, Woodrow Dollarhyde. Beach joins a cast that already includes Ford, Daniel Craig, Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde and Paul Dano. The story revolves around a group of Western settlers and Apache Indians who must settle their differences and join forces when aliens attack their land.

Favreau will be directing the film from a script by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof. Filming is set to start this summer.
