True Grit . . . and John Wayne

As true John Wayne fans, my family and I were more than wary when months ago, we learned Hollywood was filming a remake of True Grit, one of John Wayne's greatest movies. Since then, we've peeked inside at the film trailers . . . just to see if it can, in any way, measure up to the Duke's version.

And maybe, just maybe, it will come close. But I won't hold my breath.

What do you think? Are you a John Wayne fan? Do you enjoy westerns? Will this be the beginning of many John Wayne remakes? Whatever happens, please promise me they won't try to refilm The Cowboys. You just don't mess with perfection.
