Coens Taking on “True Grit”

Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen are reportedly taking on a remake of John Wayne’s classic “True Grit.”

The movie, which won Wayne an Oscar, was released in 1969.  Variety says the new movie will not be a traditional remake, and instead will be very faithful to the Charles Portis book.  The book is about a 14 year-old girl who joins forces with an older US marshal to track her father’s killer in hostile Indian territory.

Even though I wasn’t nuts about their last movie, I’ll still go and see anything the Coens do.  This is no exception.  -Sam
