MTV Splash Page chats with 'Iron Man' screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who hae turned their pens to the forever-gestating Platinum Studios movie 'Cowboys and Aliens', which is also set to star Robert Downey Jr.
"As far as we know, it’s all a go," Ostby told MTV. "We’re just hoping it does because it felt like the right time for this kind of film and I just want to see how we’ll pull off all the cool stuff in it. It’s ridiculous. It’s one of those movies that every idea that you can come up with is actually something you can pull off these days. There’s no reason to edit yourself."
As far as Downey goes, it's unclear when he'll fit the movie into his busy dance card:
"We finished our draft and it all seems to be a go in terms of casting," added Ostby. "I think Robert’s doing ‘Sherlock’ and ‘Iron Man 2' next year, so that’s thankfully someone else’s problem to figure out how to make all that work, but the script is done…"
