Sam Rockwell has also joined the cast, reteaming with Favreau after Iron Man 2. Adam Beach has been confirmed to take on the role of Nat Colorado. The script was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Damon Lindelof. Kurtzman, Orci, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, and Brian Grazer are producing.
