Been seeing the trailers for this lately and it's got me interested:


Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with "true grit," Reuben J. "Rooster" Cogburn. Mattie insists on accompanying Cogburn, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not augment her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes. The unlikely trio find danger and surprises on the journey, and each has his or her "grit" tested.
True Grit (2010) - IMDb

The original is most certainly a classic, so what I'm digging about this one is that it's billed more as another adaptation of the novel than it is a remake of the John Wayne film.

Jeff Bridges is going to play Rooster Cogburn? This is going to shit all over the original. :metal:

Well, maybe not completely shit all over the original, since Robert Duvall was in it. However, I think Barry Pepper is one of the few guys that can come close to pulling off that role. I've dug him in almost everything I've seen him in.

Dude, look at IMDB. The reason I mentioned him by name is because he already has the role. :lol:
