They're turning 'True Grit' into a dang porno

You know, it's just a damn shame when someone takes something that you love and turns it into a porno. But that's exactly what's happening to "True Grit." Some dudes are making a porn version of the Coen brothers' 2010 adaptation of Charles Portis' brilliant, timeless novel, according to XBiz Newswire.

And they didn't even bother to come up with a clever porn-pun variation on the title. It's just called "True Grit XXX," which could very well lead confused video store customers to wonder how they missed the other 28 sequels (or 27 if you count this) chronicling the further adventures of Marshall Cogburn and Mattie Ross.

But don't worry, director Jack the Zipper assures us this will be a real classy affair, with sets and acting and stuff.

"We’re going to be out in the open Plains to capture all the grandeur," Zipper told XBiz. "We’re going to be on horseback. We’re going to have authentic weapons from the 1800s. We have re-enactor clubs joining in. We’re going to have as much detail as we can possibly accomplish."

Award-winning stag star Mark Davis "can’t wait to shock everybody" with his interpretation of Rooster Cogburn, Zipper said.

I know nothing is sacred and all, but this is the sort of thing that really drives home just what a stupid time we live in.
