Clint Eastwood is busy plotting his next film as a director, but it may well be the last we ever see him involved with.
According to reports, the iconic Hollywood star is considering retiring from the director’s chair after his next flick, which looks set to be a courtroom thriller titled Juror #2.
Discussing Film say that sources close to the actor have shed some light on Eastwood’s plans for the future, claiming that his next project could be the final one of his long and illustrious career.
If Juror #2 is made it will mark Eastwood’s 40th as a director. The 92-year-old most recently directed and starred in Cry Macho (2021), but has an extensive resume of award-winning flicks to his name, including Letters from Iwo Jima and Flags of our Fathers (2006), Million Dollar Baby (2004), American Sniper (2014), and Sully (2016)
As per reports, Juror #2 will focus on a man summoned to deliberate a murder case, only to realize that he may have caused the victim’s death.
As the trial unfolds, the juror “must grapple with the dilemma of whether to manipulate the jury to save himself, or reveal the truth and turn himself in.”
Discussing Film say that Juror #2 is being set up with Warner Bros. – Eastwood has worked with the studio for the majority of his glittering career.
It’s being said that the film has been “internally billed” as the Dirty Harry star’s last ever film, though other rumors insist that there is a small chance he will continue.
Though the actor-turned-director is certainly a busy man, these days he also makes sure to enjoy his life, limiting his work commitments severely. His daughter Francesca Eastwood spoke recently on what an amazing grandfather Clint had turned out to be.
She posted pictures of the megastar with his grandson Titan, with the caption: “The best dad. Best grandfather.” People in the comments were quick to remark on how similar the two of them looked.
Clint’s daughter, Laurie Murray, has a son named Lowell Tomas Murray, who has talked candidly about his relationship with his grandfather. He remarked what a great person Eastwood was, saying: “All I would say is that he’s been a great father to my mom, and always great to me and my family whenever we see him.”
I don’t know about you, but I’d love for Clint Eastwood to continue making films forever. He’s such a special talent!
