Would you like to star in the new Coen Bros film?

Are you a 12 to 16 year old girl with a penchant for existential dramas with a twinge of black comedy? You are?! Good news! The Coen Brothers want you to star in their upcoming remake of True Grit!

Paramount Pictures have put out a casting call for any young girl eager to take on the lead role of Mattie in the Coen Brothers’ latest. No experience necessary.

Here is what they are looking for:

Fourteen year old Mattie is a simple, tough as nails, young woman in post-Civil War Arkansas. Her unusually steely nerves and straightforward manner are often surprising to those she meets. She possessed plenty of true grit and determination. Enough so that she insists on going with 2 marshals to hunt down the killer of her father. We are looking for a girl who’s tough, strong and tells it like it is. Must be able to portray Caucasian.

The lucky young actress will join Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin and Matt Damon. The Coens had previously stated that their remake would be based less on the film starring John Wayne, and more so on the novel by Charles Portis, in which Mattie is the main character.

So, if you are willing to spend some time in the U.S., attend an open call or submit an audition tape online! Check out the rest of the details here.

Discuss: I’m a 21 year old male with sideburns and a ‘fro. BUT, I am able to “portray Caucasian”. Have I got a shot?
