Snow of New Mexico locations favoured for True Grit shoot

The Coen Brothers have said that a lack of springtime snow was a factor in their decision to film their remake of True Grit in New Mexico rather than Oklahoma and Arkansas, where the story is set.

Joel Coen said: “The time of year we were filming, we knew we wanted to have snow in the movie but we wanted to have reliably enough snow. The trick was snow but not too much snow. We weren’t sure we were reliably going to get any snow at that time of year in Arkansas.”

The brothers previously worked extensively on location in New Mexico for their Oscar-winner No Country For Old Men.
