    is it bad that I really like your casting for this remake? I can actually see it…

      I’m glad you do because I did as well! Patrick Wilson and Chris Pine are right now around the same age as Newman and Redford were in ’69, respectively. From a casting perspective, I thought it wouldn’t be a bad choice to go with those guys.

      I could definitely see Brad Pitt as Sundance. When I saw Spy Game, it was like watching twins play the leading roles. Although Pitt is a little old for the part. I think Redford was in his mid-late 30s in ’69.

    I remember seeing this movie at the theater in 1969 a few months after seeing the original True Grit movie. I liked the movie and remember the B.J. Thomas song from the soundtrack that was a #1 hit. How would you cover the musical score since that was such a prominent part of the original movie?

    • John Murphy says:

      There’s no way, other than using the same score. Nothing could top the original movie score, in my opinion.
