IMDB has four fantastic looking character posters from True Grit. They’re basically the same images from the earlier poster but not combined. Things are really ramping up now and I’m getting very, very excited…
Jeff Bridges is Rooster Cogburn…
Hailee Steinfeld is Mattie Ross…
Matt Damon is LeBoeuf…
Josh Brolin is Tom Chaney…
Thanks to Navid for pointing these out.
Hailee Steinfeld, the newcomer with the daunting task of playing Mattie Ross in the Coen brothers Christmas released, True Grit, gave a short interview to EW.com about the casting process…
USA Today is carrying two articles about True Grit. They’re only short interviews with 13 year-old, star in the making, Hailee Steinfeld, and Jeff Bridges but they contain some interesting comments.
“I actually started what I called the Bad Boy Jar. If they were to curse, they had to pay, because they did that pretty often. The f-word was $5, and every other word was $1,” she says cheerfully. “They would say the f-word, and then realize they’d said it, and then they would say the s-word. So I’d be like, ‘OK, that’s $6!’ The guys all looked at me and said, ‘OK, this is not fair. We have to designate you a word now.’ So I was not allowed to say ‘like’ or else it was 50 cents.
“It is a heavy movie, and you get on set and it’s, like, the mood is still (intense), from whatever we just did. But like at lunchtime and after lunch, it was a really, like, relaxed set.
“My goal when I was filming was she would never be happy. She’s trying to be as tough as she can be. A father would be the one to help her out of it, but she doesn’t have one. The entire time, she’s testing to see if he [Bridges' Rooster Cogburn] can be like a father,”
“Talking about ‘innocent girl’and so forth, I’d say we both have complex characters. The girl might seem innocent, but she’s quite intellectual and quite savvy about a lot of things,” Bridges says. “On the other hand, Rooster’s innocence and naïveté are brought to light, even through his grizzledness.
“The basic premise is this young girl is looking for somebody to go after the killer of her father. She asks, ‘Who is the best bounty hunter?’ And a bunch of guys are good, but Rooster is the badass merciless one. You don’t want to mess with him.”

I love the bear man!
Paramount Pictures have released the first official picture from the Coen brother’s forthcoming adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, True Grit. It shows Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn complete with eye patch and the young Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross.
I’m really, really excited about this movie!
Thanks to Blake for sending it in!
Not much more to say on this really but here’s the first photo (I’ve seen anyway) of Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn wearing the famous eye patch, from the set of the Coen brothers’ next movie, True Grit! Also below is perhaps the best look at newcomer Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross. Having read the book I’m still surprised by how smart the Coen’s version of Rooster looks. Quite dapper for an alcoholic cowboy…
I found the photos Blanco County News where there are more on set shots.
According to this on set report the Granger, Texas location for the Coen brothers’ True Grit is costing an eye-watering $23,000 per MINUTE to run! From what I’ve seen of it so far, it might prove to me money well spent. The report also has 20 photos and some video clips of the movie being made, one of which shows Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) and Yarnell arriving in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
