First look at Jeff Bridges as Roooster Cogburn on the set of ‘True Grit’

Here’s a first look at Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn in The Coen Brother’s True Grit, currently filming in Granger, TX.

One of our readers, James, was back on set yesterday, here’s his latest update:

Today (5/3) I went back to the set for a few hours and watched them film two scenes. The first since was a scene of the hanging of 3 men the second scene was with Jeff Bridges who had just arrived to the set, but I never saw him with the an eyepatch. No Matt, but I hear that he will be there tomorrow. The crew and cast will be in Granger until Thursday and then will film somewhere else in Texas.
