March 10, 2010
Just got word from our Military Editor Alan Huffines that Granger, Texas, which is northeast of Austin, will be converted into an Old West street for the Coen brothers new take on True Grit. Oscar winner Jeff Bridges will play the John Wayne part.

Here's the news report:

GRANGER - "True Grit," a film classic that saw John Wayne receive an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1969, is being refilmed in Granger.

This rural crossroads of 1,400 situated on state Highway 95 between Bartlett and Taylor dates back to 1882 when the Houston and San Antonio branches of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad intersected here.

The brick facades of the buildings along its 100-foot wide main street reflect the era of the late 19th century.

"If everybody was satisfied with himself, there would be no heroes."
—Mark Twain
