Tommy Lee Jones has made a few movies as a director, including The Three Burials Of Melquiades and The Sunset Limited, and now he’s lining up his next directorial vehicle with The Homesman, which he will also star in, write, and produce.
This period drama, which is described as a bit of a passion project for Tommy, centres on a claim-jumper (Tommy Lee Jones) and a pioneer woman in the 19th Century, who both escort three insane women on a bizarre journey from Nebraska to Iowa, where they must brave the harsh elements along the way.
The producers are in talks with Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp to co-produce, finance, and distribute the drama. Tommy Lee Jones will next be seen in the long-awaited sequel Men in Black III. It isn’t known when shooting will start on The Homesman. (Source: Variety)
