Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges will be getting a little dusty when cameras roll on “True Grit” the Coen Brothers latest attempt at adpating a novel.  Production will begin next month in New Mexico.  This represents a return to both New Mexico and Adaptation since the 2007 “No Country For Old Men”. 

Bridges will assume the role of Rooster Cogburn the character made famous by John Wayne in the 1968 film version.  Damon will play La Boeuf a Texas ranger who joins Cogburn on the trail of a murderer. 

I for one and looking forward to reuniting The Dude with The Coens.  Only good things can happen.  Damon ought to fit in nicely as well.  Josh Brolin is rumored to be joining the cast as well but nothing is official. 

True Grit is slated for a Holiday 2010 release

The Dude goes to the Dude Ranch?
