It opens December 25, 2010. And is based mostly on Charles Portis's novel, not a remake of the original movie.
Jeff Bridges will play John Wayne's roll in the remake of "True Grit." I think he is a very good choice.
In the original movie, John Wayne covered his left eye for John Ford, who lost vision in that eye when he removed bandages too soon after a cataract operation.
Noone knows why Bridges decided to cover the other eye. Wayne was 61 when he did the movie and Bridges will be 61 in December.
The movie will also star another Coens alum, Josh Brolin, along with Barry Pepper and Matt Damon.
I just loved this movie. I can't wait to see this one. Heck I love all John Wayne movies. lol =)
Here is the original movie from youtube.
