Filming dates or theatrical releases have not been announced, but “Eastwood has already begun looking for filming locations,” the Deadline website revealed.
Eastwood, who will turn 90 in May, is known for his ability to shoot quickly – often a single double or two on stage – and fit the budget, writes Variety.
The screenplay for “Cry Macho,” which has not yet received a green light from Warner Bros., was written by N. Richard Nash, author of the 1970 novel of the same name, with Nick Schenk, a screenwriter who had previously worked with Clint. Eastwood on “Gran Torino” (2008) and “The Mule” (2018).
The film follows the story of a rodeo star who has become a horse breeder, who accepts a mission entrusted to him by a former employer: to go to Mexico to bring the latter’s son who lives with an alcoholic mother and to bring him back to Texas, the other side of the border.
According to Hollywood media, Arnold Schwarzenegger was to play the lead role in “Cry Macho” in 2011, after his tenure as governor of California, but the project was canceled then.
Born in 1930, Clint Eastwood has more than 50 active films and began his small-career career in the 1950s before becoming famous.
Last year, he launched the controversial “Richard Jewell.” The feature film was widely criticized and criticized for presenting an unscrupulous journalist who exchanged sexual favors for information.
In the 1960s, Sergio Leone’s western trilogy that made him world famous was criticized for gratuitous violence. A few years later, Eastwood was charged with fascism for his role as a police officer in “Inspector Harry” and then for “American Sniper” in 2014.
He received the Oscar for “Best Director” and “Best Picture” – “The Ruthless” in 1993 – and again the same statuettes for “Million Dollar Baby” in 2005. He was also awarded the Palme D’or at the Cannes Film Festival for his entire career.
Eastwood announced that he would no longer play the role of “Gran Torino” in 2008. However, he reappeared in front of the camera four years later in “Effect Shot” and then in “The Mule”, 2018.
