The Coen Brothers to Remake True Grit!

For the new Coen Brothers movie, they are remaking the 1969 John Wayne western "True Grit". They are supposedly teaming up with Scott Rudin and others who helped them with "No Country for Old Men" to adapt this western classic that won John Wayne an Oscar. 
Though it is a remake, the Coen Brothers say it will be more focused and inspired by the novel of the same name by Charles Portis, which inspired the 1969 film. 
The novel is from the point of view of a young girl and the 1969 movie is from the point of view of the lawman(John Wayne). 
I think this should be interesting. While I'm not a huge fan of the remake machine hollywood has turned into, some serve purpose and do justice. We already know that the coen's are more than capable of shooting a good western (No Country for Old Men). 
They just finished a script called "A Serious Man" and they are currently working on "A Yiddish Policeman's Union" which could be out later this year.
