Posted on

The Big Lebowski 2? Not quite, but “The Dude” Jeff Bridges is in talks to reunite with directors Joel and Ethan Coen for their upcoming remake of the 1969 Western True Grit, according to Variety. Bridges would play U.S. Marshal Rooster J. Cogburn, a role which earned John Wayne his only Academy Award. In the film, a 14-year-old girl hires Cogburn to track down the man who killed her father.
