    Angry Jeff Bridges as Marshal Cogburn ?!?!

    Are you kidding me?

    In case you haven't heard, there is a re-make of True Grit being released next month, with Jeff Bridges playing the role of Marshall Cogburn.

    Sacrilege. There are some things you just don't do in America, and one of them is reprise a John Wayne role.

    It's just not done.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    I tend to agree here pilgrim. I thought Bridges was an anti too.

    Jeff Bridges isn't man enough to wipe Rooster Cogburns ass,Blasphemy.I got a feeling that people old enough to remember John Wayne,or see the real True Grit movie,will not go see this remake

    At least it's not Tom Cruise or Matt Damon

    Just because you can do a thing doesn't mean you should. I shudder to think how TG will be made PC. What is it with all the remakes, are they that lacking in new material. I'll save my money and rent the original - again.

    I think that Russell Crowe, Viggo Mortensen or even Kevin Costner would've made a better Marshall Cogbrun than Jeff Bridges (terrible casting!).

    Russell Crowe in 3:10 to Yuma


    Viggo Mortensen in Appaloosa


    Kevin Costner in Wyatt Earp

    I would add Tom Selleck to that list, at least he is not an anti! I will save my money and skip that RE-FAKE!
    God bless our troops!

    I could maybe see Kurt Russell. He did wear an eye patch as Snake Plisken in Escape from New York.

    I won't even watch the commercial for this movie. I leave the room or change the channel. If this were on network TV and wouldn't watch it.

    This will not be Bridges first attempt in the western genre, ala Wild Bill in 1995, which I was not impressed with. I doubt he will improve in TG.

    Bridges is not John Wayne plus this remake has the biggest anti-gun gunner of all time in it, Matt Damon
