Jonathan White (Channing Tatum) had a rough childhood. His father, a cop, was killed in the line of duty, and Jonathan was raised by his grandmother in the Queensbridge Projects in Queens, NY. He had a lot of friends, and he was the only white kid, so they called him Milk. Milk and his closest friends were going to start a hardcore punk band and become stars like their favorite band, “MDC (Millions of Dead Cops)”. But fate intervened. Milk and his friends were always hassled by a couple of neighborhood junkies, until one day Milk had enough and killed one of the junkies. Later, they were forced to kill the second junkie to avoid being caught. But the police knew more than they publicly let on. Detective Stanford (Robert De Niro) approaches young Milk and tells him he doesn’t have to worry about getting caught. His dad was Stanford’s partner, which makes them like family. Sixteen years later, Jonathan lives in Long Island with his wife Kerry White, and their beautiful daughter. Like his father, Jonathan is a cop, assigned to the Queensbridge projects where he grew up. 9/11 has caused the neighborhood to change, and real estate developers work closely with the police on a project called “Quality of Life”, an effort to rid the neighborhood of junkies and homeless people. For Jonathan, the changes become personal when a rabble-rousing newspaper publishes a letter from an unnamed source, which describes the details of sixteen-year old murders that were never solved because the police didn’t care. Jonathan’s world is thrown into a tailspin as the letters continue and Sergeant Mathers (James Gandolfini) asks him to give the newspaper editor a visit. The editor, an aging hippie named Roger Daltry, is determined to find out more about the unsolved murders. Jonathan researches his old friends to see if they’re behind the letters. Many are dead, or have been relocated due to the Quality of Life project. He’s pretty sure the culprit is Vinny (Terrence Howard), his closest friend. Vinny had a troubled upbringing, and he and Jonathan shared many secrets. Vinny spent some time in jail, and still lives at home with his mom. Jonathan’s paranoia intensifies when he finds his work locker unlocked, with a copy of the newspaper inside. In the newspaper is a brand new letter about the murders. Kerry begins receiving threatening phone calls, and Mathers pressures him to silence Daltry. Jonathan confronts his old friend, but can’t be sure if he has anything to do with the letters.

Paramount Pictures Open Casting Calls for Girl 12-16 to play lead role in "True Grit"

*** Important Update ***

If you can not attend any of the open casting calls, you may also submit a video taped audition.

Paramount Pictures and The Coen Brothers are holding free acting auditions for a GIRL, AGE 12-16 YEARS OLD to be the lead of their new feature film, "True Grit".

This is a remake of the western that earned John Wayne his Academy Award as one-eyed sheriff Rooster Cogburn in 1969. In the Coens' screenplay, "True Grit" will be told from the point of view of Mattie Ross. The movie will begin in 1928, at a point when Mattie tells how she avenged her father's murder back in 1873, when she was only 14 years old.

The casting directors, Rachel Tenner and Ellen Chenoweth, are seeking the following:

Mattie Ross: Female. Caucasian. 12-16 years of age. Mattie is a simple, tough-as-nails young woman. Her steely nerves and straightforward manner are a shocking contrast to the way women behaved in the early century. She is possessed of true grit and plenty of determination, enough so that she insists on going with two marshals to hunt down the killer of her father.

Do not make the mistake of trying to appear like or imitate Kim Darby (who played Mattie Ross in the original film). The film's publicists state, "We are looking for a Caucasian girl who is tough, strong and tells it like it is." The casting directors are looking for REAL (scrubbed-down, no make-up), ‘gritty’ girls! Preferably the kind that rides horses, gets dirty & speaks her mind! They are NOT looking for ‘theatrical’ model types! Rodeo girls (who ride & rope) are best! Not "actor-like / pageant queens".

According to a release from the casting office, the filmmakers are looking for “a 12-16 yr. old Caucasian girl who is tough, strong and tells it like it is. They are open to all looks, so come give it a try! No acting experience is necessary.”

Writer-directors Joel and Ethan Coen “would love, love, love to find somebody unknown,” said casting director Rachel Tenner, who worked with the Coens on “A Serious Man,” “Burn After Reading” and “No Country for Old Men,” which won the Best Picture Oscar in 2008. “Any girls with an instinct to try should come and give it a shot.”

This film is shooting in New Mexico and Texas and is slated to begin March 20, 2010.
