True Grit, a western remake starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon, opens in theaters nationwide December 22, 2010.
Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney, and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn, she sets out with him (over his objections) to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.
The cast of True Grit includes Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Bruce Green, Roy L. Jones, Elizabeth Marvel, Barry Pepper, Hailee Steinfeld and Nicholas Sadler.
