Movie Trailer: True Grit Gets Grittier

-By Warner Todd Huston

Joel and Ethan Cohen have taken the book that the 1970 John Wayne vehicle of the same name was based on and given it a new treatment. The book was published in 1969 and written by Charles Portis and related the tale of a young girl determined to avenge the death of her father by teaming up with a seedy, aging gunfighter named Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn and a greedy Texas Ranger named La Boeuf.

I am all in for this one, I have to tell you! But it sure seems like Jeff Bridges and especially Matt Damon are in every other movie these days! For that matter, Josh Brolin has done quite a lot of work lately, too.

But this trailer looks great.
