    True Grit remake



    Jeff Bridges in True Grit by the Coen brothers.

    I know there was a thread on this somewhere, but I didn't see it.

    With all the western fans I know we have on board, how many of you are looking forward to this one?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Love True Grit
    Love Jeff Bridges
    Love the Coen brothers.

    Just wondering how Coenish it will be. They can be very unique at times.

    Will be interesting to see, but I don't see it coming anywhere close to the characters in the original. I wonder if in the remake the actress's character will be as annoying as Kim Darby's portrayal was?

    no way this can go wrong. No possible way.

    Jeff Bridges is perfect, and the Coens have the right attitude for the movie.

    Would love to see a remake if only to see someone other than Kim Darby play the young woman part.
