The Coen’s True Grit to get Christmas release

Posted by LiveFor on January 20, 2010

Paramount Pictures has scheduled Joel and Ethan Coen’s remake of True Grit for a Christmas Day 2010 release.

Based on Charles Portis’ novel, the story follows a 14-year-old girl who, along with an aging U.S. marshal (Jeff Bridges) and another lawman (Matt Damon), tracks her father’s killer in hostile Indian territory. Josh Brolin also stars.

Still no word on who will be playing the main character of the girl, Mattie. Open casting was mentioned a while back, but still no word on how that is going.

The positioning sets the film squarely up for a high-profile awards run and the Christmas Day holiday box-office.

Really looking forward to seeing The Dude go cowboy in this one.
