Tommy Lee Jones to remake 1972 film The Cowboys

The Men In Black star will revamp the movie, based on a novel by William Dale Jennings, for modern audiences in his third project as director, reports Variety.com.

The original starred Wayne and Bruce Dern and followed the story of a rancher forced to train a group of novices for a cattle drive.
