Just when you thought you would be spared a sequel to a film with Marshall Rooster Cogburn because “The Duke” (John Wayne) was dead, the Coen Brothers come along with the grand idea of remaking TRUE GRIT. They tapped Jeff Bridges.

The late John Wayne won an Oscar for his performance as Cogburn. Here’s the trailer for that effort:

The Coen vision is is darker but not without humor;

Bridges will also be opening in TRON within an week of TRUE GRIT. Here is the TRON 2010 official trailer.

Bridges also appeared in the 1982 TRON. A comparison is instructive.
