We’ve watched as an amazing cast gravitates to the new film by the Coen Bros. Variety today reported Paramount’s chosen release date for the Brothers’ remake of True Grit and it’s an extra Christmas present for our US friends as the film will open in cinemas in an Oscar-friendly December 25th 2010.

Golden Globe winner for his turn in Crazy Heart Jeff Bridges will reunite with The Coens, taking on the iconic role of Rooster Cogburn, with Matt Damon and Josh Brolin expected to take their place in what promises to be another fine turn in the Coen’s road.

Following the understated, suburban malaise of A Serious Man I can’t wait to see the Coens return to the barren landscapes.
