The latest movie in line for a Hollywood remake is True Grit, the 1969 western that earned John Wayne an Oscar for best actor. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ethan and Joel Coen will be making the film and are in discussions with actors Matt Damon and Josh Brolin, though it’s hard to imagine either in the role of the gruff US marshal made famous by Wayne.Paramount Pictures said on its website that Jeff Bridges is also being considered for the lead. Damon is having a busy year—he’ll soon be seen in Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant and Clint Eastwood’s Invictus, about the life of Nelson Mandela. Brolin is currently filming Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps with Oliver Stone.
