HELLBOY star Ron Perlman and Flashdance pin-up Jennifer Beals are teaming up for the latest film adaptation of Owen Wister's classic novel The Virginian.

The actors will join Cole Hauser in the western remake, which has previously starred Bill Pullman, Gary Cooper and Joel MCCrae. It was also a classic Cecil B. DeMille movie in 1914.

Wister's 1902 novel also inspired a beloved 1960s TV series.

Ryan Little will direct the latest adaptation, according to Moviehole.net.
