Casting Call Alert: Coen Brothers Looking for Mattie Ross in "True Grit" 

As we mentioned before, the Coen brothers and Paramount are remaking "True Grit" based on Charles Portis novel. Now, they've launched their search for the young female lead, Mattie Ross, played by Kim Darby (pictured) in the original 1969 film that won John Wayne a Best Actor Oscar.

They're looking for a girl between the ages of 12 and 17. If you're interested, you can apply by self taping or by attending an open call in Arkansas, Mississippi, or Oklahoma in the coming weeks.

You can go to the "True Grit" casting call's official site right here.

This character will tag along two marshals -- to be played by Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon -- to hunt for the man who killed her father -- to be played by Josh Brolin.

Applicants, study the Mattie Ross character well, and good luck!
