Coens Adapting True Grit

Source: /Film

The Coens Bros. will be adapting a different take, telling the story from the view of Mattie.

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s father, Frank, was killed by one of his own workers for a horse, $150 cash, and two Californian gold pieces. Though only a girl, Mattie travels to claim her father’s body, but finds that the authorities are doing nothing to find his killer. This will be the beginning of her search for revenge.
Jeff Bridges has been attached to the role of Rooster Cogburn, made famous by John Wayne. How the Dude will pull this off I'm very curious to see.

It's great to see the Joel and Ethan Coen finally making their western. Now if Quentin Tarantino would make his next.

No Country was essentially a really good Western. It had all the classic elements.

It was, but for the purposes of being a western in the sense of being a John Ford western it's their first.

I've come to appreciate the Coen's work more with age.

I didn't even like The Big Lebowski or Fargo when I first saw them.

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
