Movie News - True Grit
The good folks at Paramount have supplied us with a trailer for the upcoming Coen Brothers film "True Grit". Starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and introducing Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit tells the story of a 14-year-old girl who joins an aging U.S. marshal (Bridges) and another lawman (Damon) in tracking her father's killer into hostile Indian territory. The film is an adaptation of Charles Portis’ original novel. Sticking more closely to the source material than the 1969 feature adaptation starring Western icon John Wayne, the Coens' True Grit tells the story from the young girl's perspective, and re-teams the celebrated filmmaking duo with their No Country for Old Men screenwriting partner Scott Rudin.
