Oscar staples Josh Brolin and Matt Damon are set to join Jeff ‘The Dude’ Bridges in the Coen Bros’ remake of the classic Henry Hathaway/John Wayne western, “True Grit” (1969), says Variety.

Bridges would play U.S. marshal Rooster Cogburn, and Damon is in talks to play the lawman (played by Glen Campbell in the original) who teams with Cogburn and a 14-year old girl to track her father’s killer into hostile Indian territory. Brolin would play the killer.

“True Grit” will likely be released late 2010.

A sequel to 1969’s “True Grit”, titled “Rooster Cogburn”, was made in 1975, with John Wayne reprising his role from the first film, and Katharine Hepburn as an elderly spinster, Eula Goodnight, who teams up with him. A made-for-television sequel, entitled ”True Grit: A Further Adventure” was made in 1978, starring Warren Oates and Lisa Pelikan, and featured the further adventures of Rooster Cogburn and Mattie Ross.
