Tommy Lee Jones Set for 'The Cowboys', Alan Taylor in Talks to Direct 'Terminator 5'


The 'Men in Black' actor will write and direct the remake of the John Wayne pic, while Taylor hopes to land new helming gig after 'Thor: The Dark World'.

Tommy Lee Jones will serve behind the lens for another Western movie after "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada". Variety reports that the Kay depicter in "Men in Black" films will write and direct "The Cowboys" for Warner Bros. Donald De Line is on board to produce with Lynn Harris set to oversee the production on the remake of the 1972 movie.

Starring John Wayne and Bruce Dern, the original pic follows 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. It is still unknown whether or not Oscar-winning Jones will also take part in his new directing gig as an actor.

Paramount Pictures might also land a director for its "Terminator 5". Variety once again reports the news, learning that "Game of Thrones" helmer Alan Taylor is in talks to work on "Terminator 5". If the deal is sealed, the rebooted "Terminator" will be his new gig after "Thor: The Dark World" that will storm theaters nationwide on November 8.

Arnold Schwarzenegger said he would return for it, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been rumored making appearances as well alongside Arnie.
