We’ve found a couple photos for two highly anticipated films from three Oscar winning directors. We have the first official image from the Coen Brothers True Grit adaptation featuring Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld and a shot of Matt Damon and Bryce Dallas Howard in Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter. Check out both photos below…
As you can see, Bridges is rocking the infamous eye patch that John Wayne made so famous in the original. The story of True Grit centers on a U.S. Marshal (Bridges), his sidekick (Damon), and a 14 year old girl named Mattie (Steinfeld) who tags along as they try and track down her father’s killer. The original film’s point of view was taken from that of Cogburn, while the Coen’s remake we will follow the vantage point of the young girl. The cast also includes Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper in supporting roles. The film is scheduled for release on December 25, 2010.
Another Matt Damon film that’s scheduled to hit theaters this year is Hereafter. It reunites the actor with his Invictus director Clint Eastwood for the tale of a psychic who can’t connect to his girlfriend or anyone else around him. His love interest is played by Howard, who looks pretty great in this photo. She’s quite beautiful when she’s not wearing that horrible wig from Twilight (yeah, I went there). Hereafter opens in theaters on October 22nd.
