Tommy Lee Jones to Remake John Wayne’s ‘Cowboys’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Donald De Line producing

Tommy Lee Jones is heading out west again and will write, direct and star in a remake of John Wayne’s 1972 pic “The Cowboys.”

Warner Bros. is on board to develop the film with Donald De Line producing.

The original also starred Bruce Dern and followed a rancher who is forced to train a group of boys and get a herd to market on time to avoid financial ruin after his cattle drivers leave to look for gold.

Lynn Harris will oversee for Warner Bros.

Jones is no stranger to the Western genre, making strong turns in Ron Howard’s “The Missing” and the classic miniseries “Lonesome Dove.” He directed “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.”

Jones, who is repped by CAA, can be seen next with Robert De Niro in Relativity’s “The Family.”
