Bitter Balcony is looking forward to the Coen bros. homage to the Duke himself, John Wayne, with a remake of his 1969 classic "True Grit." Based on the novel by Charles Portis, the story centers around a young girl convincing a rough U.S Marshall to track down her father's murderer. Jeff Bridges, whose highly anticipated "Tron: Legacy" is coming out soon, will take over the role of Cogburn, one that won Wayne an Oscar in 1970. Matt Damon will play his partner, Josh Brolin as the man they pursue, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld as the girl they must abide to (we had to throw a Dude reference in there). Anyways, the movie looks badass and we know that if anybody delivers on understated violence and irony, it's the Coens.
