The Jeff Bridges movie I’m most excited for this year is True Grit, the Coen Brothers Western which is a readaptation of a book that was done once - and very, very famously - as a John Wayne film.
IMDB has premiered four character posters for the movie, highlighting our leads. There’s Haliee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross, the young heroine of the film, and Matt Damon and Josh Brolin as well. But most intriguing and excellent is the poster of Jeff Bridges as the one-eyed fat man Rooster Cogburn, the crotchety old US Marshall who helps Mattie track down her father’s killer.
Bridges has a totally different look from Wayne, and I love how downright mean Bridges looks. Can’t wait for this film, and I’m so happy to be living in a world where the Coens seem to be turning out about a movie a year. What a gift.
Go to IMDB to see them all.
