Academy Award winning actor Tommy Lee Jones is poised to make his directorial debut. The title of the project pretty much speaks for itself. He will helm as well as star in The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.
Jones portrays Pete Perkins, a rancher cum grave robber of sorts. In order to honor a promise to a friend, presumably named Melquiades Estrada, he performs an unusual task. He attempts to return the corpse of his friend to the man's Mexican homeland. And, apparently, that feat will require multiple attempts. (David Mumpower/BOP)
