Tommy Lee Jones to Remake ‘The Cowboys’
By Reel Life With Jane on September 06, 2013
Send to Kindle Oscar-winning Tommy Lee Jones is writing and directing a remake of Mark Rydell’s “The Cowboys,” updating the 1972 western that starred John Wayne, Bruce Dern and a bunch of youngsters tasked with manning a long cattle drive. Thus proving once again that there are no NEW ideas in Hollywood! But I do love a good western, and there aren’t many made these days (though we’ve been watching Kevin Costner’s 2003 western “Open Range,” which you can find any hour of the day, no matter when you turn the TV on). . . .
