Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L.Jackson are headed to the box.

According to Variety, HBO (a sign this’ll be of fine quality) has set the duo (who previously worked together on the forgettable “Rules of Engagement”) to star in “The Sunset Limited,” an adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy play, which Jones will also direct.

Jackson plays a man who saves another man (Jones) from throwing himself in front of a Harlem subway train. The act begins an exchange of ideologies as the two men from different backgrounds debate the worth of their lives.

The project marks Jones’ third collaboration on a McCarthy-penned piece. Jones starred in the Coen brothers-directed adaptation of “No Country for Old Men” and also adapted the McCarthy novel “Blood Meridian” as a feature script.
