You'll be hard pressed to find a replacement for the Duke in that film. :confused:

The only person I could see doing the part of Mr Anderson justice in a remake would be Robert DuVall.... period!
My dream (..if Hollywood wants to continue re-making stuff instead of rubbing two brain cells together & coming up with something original) is a historically correct version of "Northwest Passage" abour Roger's Rangers and the raid on St. Francis during the F&I war!! Till then... I guess I'll have to wait and see what the new "Lone Ranger" movie is going to turn out like. Johnny Depp has already signed up to play Tonto!!

Much to my surprise, Jeff Bridges (of all people!) pulled off Rooster Cogburn in the True Grit remake.

Bob DuVall COULD make a "decent" Mr. Anderson, but I don't believe it would be his best "Duke" role. If they were going to remake another John Wayne movie, I'd like to see Bob DuVall play J.B. Books. THAT would be a great role for him!

The Duke was a very versatile actor, and I don't believe one man could equally replay all of his parts. Just because Bridges pulled off Rooster Cogburn doesn't mean he could do just as well playing any other roles.

...some of them shouldn't be remade at all. I mean, who could really do another McKlintock!?.. or Cahill???

Thanks for the post it is great. Broke Back Mountain was an attack on the state and people of Wyoming. Mattew Shepard a Gay Man was murdered in Larimie and the Gay Rights movement tried to make him into a dead hero for the movement. They tried every way to force the state to pass a Hate Crimes Bill it has failed. They have tried to damage the Wyoming economy and deride the Cowboy States image. It has not worked. They don't seem to know sheep herders are not cowboys.:D

Let us not re-make "The Cowboys". Let us not re-make any of the great old films. Let us watch them and appreciate why they were great. Please God let somebody make an ORIGINAL great movie!
