First Look At Jeff Bridges In The Coen Brothers' TRUE GRIT

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
He aint The Dude any more and he looks more likely to shoot you than to abide and things are certainly looking rather different for Jeff Bridges' latest go around with the Coen Brothers.

It's hard to imagine something much more different from The Big Lebowski than True Grit and yet it's Grit that brought the trio back together and Paramount have just released the first image from the Coen's adaptation of the Charles Portis novel. Here's how Amazon tells the story:

Charles Portis has long been acclaimed as one of America's foremost comic writers. True Grit is his most famous novel--first published in 1968, and the basis for the movie of the same name starring John Wayne. It tells the story of Mattie Ross, who is just fourteen years of age when a coward going by the name of Tom Chaney shoots her father down in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and robs him of his life, his horse, and $150 in cash money. Mattie leaves home to avenge her father's blood. With the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn, the meanest available U.S. Marshal, by her side, Mattie pursues the homicide into Indian Territory. True Grit is eccentric, cool, straight, and unflinching, like Mattie herself. From a writer of true cult status, this is an American classic through and through.

Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper (where has he been?) also star.
