Coen Brothers' True Grit (2010)

The Coen Brothers will be returning to westerns. No Country For Old Men was a modern take on westerns but now they're taking on the John Wayne classic. They will use the original novel by Charles Portis as inspiration rather than the film. I'm very interested to see if they will make this a violent dark western or try to cram comedy into it. I enjoy almost every film the Coen Brothers have made so I'm excited.

Jeff Bridges (Tron Legacy, Big Lebowski) will play the character made famous by John Wayne and the role earned Wayne an Oscar.

Matt Damon (Green Zone) and Josh Brolin (Jonah Hex) are in talks to join the film.
