When they visited the Walker Art Center last year Ethan and Joel Coen(right) said they wanted to remake “True Grit” because they felt the Henry Hathaway directed adaptation of the Charles Portis novel wasn’t true to the book.
Now the St Louis Park natives are giving a little sneak peak of what they were talking about with the release of the trailer for their remake. While you can see small references to John Wayne’s Rooster Cogburn in Jeff Bridges’ portrayal, you get the sense there’s a lot more “No Country for Old Men” than “McClintock” in the new film.
You can check it out the trailer here. The movie is released on December 25th.
