There is already talk that Jeff Bridges, who won an Oscar last year, could get another nomination for his role in True Grit. The western remake stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper and Hailee Steinfeld.

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. The stubborn teen girl is forced to pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.
