Oscar-winning moviemakers Joel and Ethan Coen are to remake John Wayne's iconic western True Grit.

The brothers will direct their own version of the movie, which earned Wayne his only Best Actor Oscar in 1970.

However, the Coens' project will be a departure from Wayne's film - they will base their story more closely to Charles Portis' book about a 14-year-old girl who tracks down her father's killer in Indian territory.

The film will reteam the brothers with producer Scott Rudin, their partner on the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men.

Casting for the True Grit remake has yet to be determined.

Boxer Mike Tyson is packing a punch in a new comedy in which he reveals himself to be a huge Phil Collins fan.

The former champ appears as himself in new movie The Hangover, in which he air drums along to Collins' In The Air Tonight, and knocks funnyman Zach Galifianakis' character out in a Las Vegas hotel suite.

The year is shaping up to be a big one for Tyson at the movies - his Cannes Film Festival award-winning documentary Tyson, directed by James Toback, is released in America next month (Apr09).
