Variety reports that Paramount Pictures will unveil Joel and Ethan Coen's 'True Grit' on December 25, 2010. The film is a remake of the 1969 Western starring John Wayne, with the Coens' 'Big Lebowski' cohort -- and recent Golden Globe winner -- Jeff Bridges stepping into the role of Marshall Reuben J. 'Rooster' Cogburn (perhaps the greatest Western character name ever), with Coen Brothers newbie Matt Damon as Texas ranger La Boeuf.

The film follows the two men as they help a young woman track down her father's killer in hostile Indian territory. 'No Country For Old Men' star Josh Brolin is also playing a role We hope you like your Westerns, because you're getting one for Christmas this year.

Meanwhile, some bad news for Chace Crawford fans: Paramount has removed the remake of 'Footloose' from its release schedule.

Originally slated to open on June 18th, the film has been a troubled production since director Kenny Ortega dropped out over creative differences. No word yet on whether the production has been completely canceled or is just on hold until a new director can be found.

It was previously announced that Crawford, who can currently be seen on the CW hit 'Gossip Girl,' would reprise the role of Ren McCormack, a role that Kevin Bacon originated in the 1984 classic.

What "creative differences" the director of 'High School Musical' would have regarding a remake of 'Footloose' is beyond us.
