Clint Eastwood, 91, makes a comeback as a director with the film Cry Macho – WATCH the trailer.
CLINT EASTWOOD, 91, has made a comeback as a director with Cry Macho, his latest film. Here’s a link to the trailer.
Clint Eastwood has been in the movie business since 1954 and shows no signs of slowing down. In recent years, the 91-year-old has shifted his concentration to directing Hollywood films. He does, however, return to star in his films on occasion, most notably Gran Torino and The Mule.
Eastwood, who is now in his tenth decade, returns to acting in his latest directorial effort, Cry Macho, the trailer for which was unveiled today.
“The film stars Eastwood as Mike Milo, a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1979, accepts a task from an ex-boss to bring the man’s little kid home from Mexico,” according to the synopsis.
“Forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unexpected connections and his own sense of redemption.” Eduardo Minett co-stars as the young boy Rafo in Cry Macho, which will be released in UK cinemas on November 12, 2021.
Tom Hanks participated in Clint Eastwood’s Sully, a film about a pilot who saved 155 people when he landed a jet in the Hudson River in 2009.
Eastwood’s experience as Rowdy Yates on Rawhide has had a significant impact on how he directs, according to the Hollywood actor, who appeared on the BBC’s The Graham Norton Show.
“He had all these filmmakers there who directed movies and made a big fuss about hollering ‘Action,’” Hanks explained.
“The horses they were riding would bolt every time they did that,” Hanks continued, explaining that actors can be spooked just as readily as horses, therefore Eastwood handles them as such.
“When you’re in a Clint Eastwood movie, you don’t realize the camera’s rolling until you hear over your shoulder, ‘All right, go ahead.’ Then you keep doing it until you hear him say, ‘That’s enough of that.’ And then you move on to the next setup,” he continued. It’s terrifying.” Eastwood was born on May 31, 1930, and gained to popularity in the 1960s as The Man With No Name in Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy of Spaghetti Westerns, as well as in the 1970s and 1980s as Dirty Harry in five films.
Since 1967, he has been producing. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
