Actor Tommy Lee Jones is set to write and direct a remake of John Wayne's classic 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. Jones previously stepped behind the camera for 2005's The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, while he has also directed forthcoming drama The Homesman, in which he co-stars with Meryl Streep, James Spader and Hilary Swank.
