Cinema Dave  Swashbuckling ournalist and

Lent Day 31 "True Grit" remake?

There is some internet buzz that the Coen Brothers are planning a remake of the John Wayne Oscar winning classic, "True Grit." Remakes of good movie do not do well, but movies inspired by remakes can be a different story.

What the Coen Brothers should consider is a title change to something like "Mattie " or "Mattie Ross" or "Mattie and the Marshall." Mattie was the role that Kim Darby portrayed. Mattie is the central character in Charles Portis serialized novel from The Saturday Evening Post.
