Joel and Ethan Coen will direct True Grit, the iconic Western that won John Wayne an Oscar.

According to reports, the movie will be more faithful to the Charles Portis book than the 1969 film. The novel centers on a 14-year-old girl who - along with a veteran U.S. marshal - tracks her father's killer into hostile Indian territory.
