Clint Eastwood is reportedly preparing to direct Juror #2 as his final movie, with the project set up at Warner Bros.
Clint Eastwood has enjoyed a career which has spanned seven decades, but as the Hollywood legend is quickly approaching his 93rd birthday, the day of his final movie is closer than we may want.
According to Discussing Film, Clint Eastwood is preparing to direct what is being “internally billed“as the final movie of his long career. The project is a legal thriller currently titled Jury #2which is said to follow “a juror on a murder trial who realizes that he may have caused the victim’s death and must grapple with the dilemma of whether to manipulate the jury to save himself, or reveal the truth and turn himself in.“Eastwood is also said to be eyeing a young Hollywood star for the leading role. As Eastwood hasn’t personally said anything about retiring, there’s always a chance that he might have another movie in him after this one.
The project is being set up at Warner Bros., which shouldn’t come as a big surprise as Clint Eastwood has a long history with the studio. Eastwood’s most recent movie for Warner Bros. was Cry Machowhich was released in theaters and on HBO Max in 2021. When Cry Macho underperformed at the box office, it was reported by the Wall Street Journal that new Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav had questioned the executives involved in the movie. When those executives said that they would always be willing to take a chance on Eastwood regardless of the box office, Zaslav reportedly said, “We don’t owe anyone any favors.” Given this news, perhaps Zaslav has changed his tune for one final Clint Eastwood movie.
In addition to directing Cry MachoClint Eastwood also starred as a “one-time rodeo star and washed up horse breeder who, in 1978, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home and away from his alcoholic mom. Crossing rural Mexico on their back way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman may find his own sense of redemption through teaching the boy what it means to be a good man.” You can check out a review from our own Chris Bumbray right here.
