Are the Coens bringing 'True Grit' to Texas?
See an update here.
The signs certainly are positive that the Coen brothers will shoot their remake of True Grit in Texas (UPDATE: Make that likely to shoot in CENTRAL Texas). The biggest positive omen? Casting calls in Lubbock and Forth Worth (Just found out that another casting call will be in Austin on Nov. 28) for the lead role of Mattie, portrayed by Kim Darby in the original. The Coens' film is expected to be closer to Charles Portis' book in which Addie was the main character. Also said to be circling the film are Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin.
