Bridges as Cogburn in True Grit


With Bridges seemingly not in possession of an eyepatch, or a duster I imagine this adaptation will look very different. If this doesn't have you convinced there's the notion of Carter Burwell scoring the film with Protestant hymns:
 “We both had the same idea at the same time: Protestant hymns.” The composer went on to explain that the lead character, Mattie Ross (to be played by Hailee Steinfeld) was so convinced of her own righteousness that they all thought Protestant hymns would be a fine way to play with her misplaced rectitude."

Can't wait to check out True Grit! Jeff Bridges looks pretty B.A.

Definitely anticipating this film. And Burwell's description of the score certainly has me intrigued also.

True Grit from what it sounds like, will probably be good. I just don't know if The Coen Bros. can do a remake.

There's no way this goes as badly as The Ladykillers remake.

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.
