Veteran Little Rock actress Candyce Hinkle has landed a role in the Coen Brothers' remaking of the movie "True Grit." She'll play the landlady, Mrs. Floyd, and appear with heroine Mattie Ross.

Filming of the movie begins this spring.

More details on the jump.


After an extensive search in Los Angeles and throughout the South, Candyce Hinkle, a Little Rock actress, has been cast in the upcoming “retelling” of the Cohen Brother’s True Grit.

Hinkle will portray Mrs. Floyd, the landlady and will appear alongside the movie’s heroine Mattie Ross.

Hinkle has appeared in other films such as Come Early Morning, Where is My Close Up Mr. Thornton and Three for the Road. She also has appeared in numerous stage plays at The Arkansas Repertory Theatre and Murry’s Dinner Playhouse. Hinkle auditioned for the role with a regional casting director who came through Little Rock in December.
The original film, based on a 1968 novel by author and Arkansas native Charles Portis, starred John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn, which earned him an Oscar. Actors set to appear in the current version are Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Hailee Steinfield as Mattie Ross. The story centers around a U.S. Marshal helping a stubborn young woman track down her father's murderer. The movie is set to start filming in Texas and New Mexico this Spring with a tentative release date of December 2010.

Hinkle is represented by Yancey Prosser with The Agency, Inc. in Little
