Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The makers of the upcoming "True Grit" remake are bringing their search for someone to play the role of Mattie Ross to West Virginia.

The casting office says auditions will be held from 2 p.m. To 6 p.m. Saturday at the Hampton Inn in Charleston.

Paramount Pictures and the Coen Brothers are looking for a 12-year-old to 16-year-old caucasian girl.

The casting office says they want a girl who is "tough, strong and tells it like is" to play the 14-year-old Mattie.

Kim Darby played Mattie in the 1969 original.

    Why remake True Grit ? A remake will never be as good as the orginal True Grit,with John Wayne and Glen Campbell.It was a classic.
