"Walk the Line" director James Mangold has his next project ready to roll. It’s a remake of the 1957 western "3:10 to Yuma," which he’ll be putting together with producer/spouse Cathy Konrad.

According to Variety, ""Walk the Line" director James Mangold and his wife, producer Cathy Konrad, have set the Columbia Pictures remake "3:10 to Yuma" as the next film he’ll direct. Pic will shoot in the summer.

Mangold and Konrad boarded "Yuma" after getting a new draft from "Collateral" scribe Stuart Beattie, who rewrote scripts from Michael Brandt and Derek Haas.

The original 1957 Western, starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin, is about a sheriff determined to bring a captured desperado to justice. Elmore Leonard wrote the short story on which it was based.

"There are a lot of good-bad themes that were only touched on in the original," Mangold said. "A lot of Westerns are meditative, but this is a total struggle culminating in a showdown, which has the potential to be one of the great movie gunfights."

Mangold’s other films include "Identity," "Girl, Interrupted," "Kate & Leopold," and "Cop Land."
