True Grit was released in 1969 when John Wayne was 62, while the remake is set to be released in 2011 when Jeff Bridges will be also 62 (or a few months shy). Funny.
62 is the new 40? Ha!

I've read somewhere (don't ask me where) that the novel was already written with John Wayne in the mind.

No, I don't think that's true. It was Portis's second novel, but the first was so obscure that he had little hope of a film sale for the second. And it's not a typical genre novel, either. I kind of doubt he was thinking of a Hollywood adaptation as he wrote it. However, his agent must have seen the potential . . .

I haven't said that it was only written to become a film, but he had Wayne in his mind when conceiving the Rooster Cogburn character. Maybe a younger Wayne.

Yeah, there must be some kind of factory that stamps these kids out. She may end up being okay, though.

The girl in the first True Grit (Kim Darby?) was so annoying that I wanted to put on my golf shoes and walk across her face....

The new one doesn't look as annoying as that :)

Once again, Mattie Ross, as written, is an annoying character. That's why she grows up to be an old maid. To present her as an appealing Disney-style heroine is to get the character completely wrong.

That doesn't by any stretch of the imagination mean that the novel can't be improved through adaptation by altering some elements of the source material.

In any event, Kim Darby is not a very good actress regardless of whether Mattie was supposed to be annoying.

You're obviously unfamiliar with the source material.
