I trust him.  I'm sure Jeff Bridges can do this role in True Grit.  Now the question is will this movie be any good for a remake?

That's year old news dude.   Here's a picture of Bridges as Rooster with the girl playing Mattie Ross (she is really 14 like the character, Kim Darby was 21 in the original)

Interesting fact : John Wayne was 61 when he played Rooster, by Christmas when the new version comes out Bridges will be 61.

This new movie is supposedly closer to the book than the John Wayne film.  If it was anyone but the Coen brothers making it I would be worried.

One of the few remakes I'm looking forward to seeing, but the statement "This new movie is supposedly closer to the book than the John Wayne film" scares me. And I know Trekgeezer is only repeating what other people have said earlier, but I have read the book, and I have seen the John Wayne film, and the film was a fairly faithful adaptation of the book.

The only two differences I can remember between the book and the film is that Kim Darby's character, Mattie Ross, loses an arm in the book, due to snakebite, and that Glen Campbell's character, La Boeuf, apparently dies in the film, but survives in the book.

Thus whoever first made that statement has either never read the book and/or seen the John Wayne film, and thus--apparently--do not know what they're talking about, which scares me.
