Now this could be an interesting cast.

Variety reports that Matt Damon and Josh Brolin are in talks to co-star in the Coen Brothers‘ upcoming remake of the classic 1969 Western True Grit.

Damon would play lawman La Beouf (originally portrayed by Glen Campbell), who teams up with U.S. marshal Rooster Cogburn to track a murderer into hostile Indian territory. If all goes as planned, Brolin would play the killer.

The Big Lebowski star Jeff Bridges is already on board to play Cogburn, portrayed by John Wayne in the original. The movie will begin production in March, for a late 2010 release.
