Joel and Ethan Coen’s next project will be an adaptation of True Grit (1969), but their version of the film will be closer to the Charles Portis novel. John Wayne won an Academy Award for his portrayal of a US marshal in the original film but the Coen brothers adaptation will place a greater focus on the 14 year-old-girl who tracks her father’s killer along side the US marhsal.
Should be interesting. The trailer for the original movie is embedded below. Thoughts?
One thought on “Coen Brothers to adapt True Grit”
This makes me happy! Although, I wish the Coens would go back to writing their own stories. Great ones like Miller’s Crossing and Barton Fink, not like the ones of late.
