One of the greatest western movies of all times, True Grit from 1969, gets “freshed up”. Messing around with classics (especially when John Wayne was awarded an Oscar for the original) is dangerous and Hollywood is all prequel, relaunch and 3D-sequel these days. Judging from the trailer, however, this could be a good one! Matt Damon seems a bit odd as a Texas Ranger and Josh Brolin is everywhere these days, but so what ? I´m looking forward to this movie.
Having a song from Johnny Cash from the “American Recordings” in it does not hurt either.
