I've said it before, and i'll say it again: Some movies don't need to be remade. The Cowboys is in that group.

Good for him. Look forward to watching, not nearly enough westerns produced any more and if they make one more Wyatt Earp I may puke.

Wonder who will play Bruce Dern’s character. After that movie I never liked him except in The Burbs.

There is and never will be a Western movie as good as the original The Cowboys.

Can not replace the Duke, just like Jeff Bridges tried to do in True Grit.

He is about the only one who could pull off the role of Will Anderson. I’m sure he will do a better job than the Dude did playing Rooster Cogburn. Looking forward to it.

Same here! I was fairly young the first time I saw it, his character scared me lol. But I do the Burbs, he played a funny character in that.

I’m skeptical but if anyone can pull it off it’s Tommy Lee Jones. It was controversial - to some - in 1972 because it showed young boys killing bad guys. I suspect this version will be watered down - I can’t imagine a studio green lighting that today.

I think the Jeff Bridges True Grit was more realistic and true to the book than John Wayne’s version, and I’m a big Duke fan. Can’t see TLJ as Wil Andersen though. I guess we’ll see.

Default The Cowboys -Tommy Lee Jones to remake

Some of us millennials like the remakes. Iíve never seen a movie older than The Godfather because my wife made me watch all three of them before I married her.

You're a true John Wayne fan. I've met several guys that said the same thing except they didn't like him at all after that movie.Lol I never even knew who he was until I saw it.

I'll watch the new one. I liked the True Grit remake. Tommy Lee Jones is a good actor so I think it'll be good.

True Grit with Jeff Bridges was a better movie than the original. Better cast, with the exception of The Duke and Robert Duval.
The Cowboys could be a good remake.

This has been rumored for the last 10 years or so. I will believe it when it really comes out. I doubt it will be as good as the original but I am sure I will go watch it and hope for the best.

I agree, but he makes one heck of a bad guy. Bruce Dern set the bar for what a bad guy should be for me growing up, and I think Ben could fill his shoes nicely.

I did not think they could make True Grit better but Jeff Bridges did it and that pains me as Duke is my favorite actor of all time. With that said I bet the new Cowboys will be a dammmned good movie. BTW I still hate Bruce Dern. In Once Upon a time in Hollywood I was watching and the whole time during his scene I'm thinking that dude needs to die LOL
