    OK, considering that set photos of Jeff Bridges filming "True Grit" have been floating around for a while now, this isn't as exciting as it might be. Still it's nice to finally get a proper look.

    This new photo, which shows Bridges as Marshal Reuben J. Cogburn and Hailee Stanfield as Mattie Ross squinting in proper Western fashion, is the first official picture we've seen of director Joel and Ethan Coens' remake of the movie that earned John Wayne his Oscar.

    The film, which is said to be truer to Charles Portis' novel than the 1969 version, finds Cogburn and La Boeuf (Matt Damon) helping Ross hunt down the man who killed the girl's father, Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), who has joined a band of outlaws led by Ned Pepper (Barry Pepper).

    "True Grit" rides on Christmas Day. Can't wait.
