In what seems to be a perfect storm of greatness you have the Coen Brothers directing a remake of the western classic True Grit, which stars Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges. Bridges takes over the role made famous by John Wayne as US Marshall Rooster Cogburn, who is asked by 14 year old Mattie Ross (newcomer Hailee Steinfeld) to help her find her father’s killer, Tom Chaney (Brolin). Things get complicated when a Texas ranger, played by Matt Damon, is after Chaney as well and wants to bring him to Texas to stand trial for another murder. The western genre has been on the back burner for a while but I think this is one like Unforgiven that is going to bring it back to the forefront. Check out the amazing trailer below.
