Looks like Clint Eastwood finally picked his next directorial film. I figure Clint would decide on something while not doing anything throughout this pandemic and now he’s getting ready get back to work finally. Clint picked a movie titled, “Cry Mancho” which is adapted from the book. It’s more of a neo-Western, though…. which the story takes place in the 70’s.
The plot for “Cry Macho” film will be about Eastwood playing a retired rodeo star who is hired to bring back an 11 Year old boy in Mexico back to the United States. The movie will have Clint playing the leading role again and it will star alongside country singer/actor Dwight Yoakam and young actor Eduardo Minett who plays the 11 year old kid.
Eastwood stayed away from the Western genre for years and looks like he’s about to make a huge comeback to it. His last Western that he starred and directed was “Unforgiven” in 1998. It’s no secret that Eastwood is a huge fan of the Western genre ’cause he did so many of those films throughout his career.
Keep in mind that Clint is 90 years old now and he’s still directing and starring the lead in his own movies. Age is not stopping this man and he definitely doesn’t believe in retirement and he’ll do this until he passes on.
Speaking of Clint Eastwood, I just watched his films “High Plains Drifter” and “Joe Kidd”…. both Westerns and loved ’em both. Great films. I’m a huge fan of Eastwood and trying to watch as many films of his as possible. There are still many I haven’t seen.
