    Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are remaking True Grit, the 1969-released Western starring John Wayne in an Oscar-winning role.

    Paramount will release the film, which is not a traditional remake. The Coen's version will have a twist and be more faithful to the book written by Charles Portis. The book followed a 14-year-old girl who hunts her father's killer in hostile Indian terrain alongside a U.S. marshal and another lawman. The Coen brothers will focus more on the little girl's point of view, whereas the Wayne version was more of a vehicle for the actor's character.
