New version will stay faithful to Portis' novel
Not a traditional remake, the Paramount film will be more faithful to the Charles Portis book than the 1969 pic, also distributed by Par.
Portis' novel is about a 14-year-old girl who, along with an aging U.S. marshal and another lawman, tracks her father's killer in hostile Indian territory.
But while the original film was a showcase for Wayne, the Coens' version will tell the tale from the girl's p.o.v.
The movie version of The Yiddish Policemen's Union should show a significant amount of Tlingit culture. Whether it does or not remains to be seen.
