Clint Eastwood is Reportedly Working on His Final Film
Earlier this year, Discussing Film revealed that Clint Eastwood’s next movie, Juror #2, is expected to be the final film of his decades-long career in Hollywood. The thriller film is under development at Warner Bros. and is expected to star Toni Collette alongside Nicholas Hoult.
The movie reportedly follows a juror involved in a murder trial who is conflicted between whether he should manipulate the jury to believe in his innocence or turn himself in after he realizes that his actions might have caused the victim’s death.
Filming for the 93-year-old filmmaker’s final film reportedly started in June this year but was halted due to the actors’ strike. Juror #2 resumed production earlier this month after the strike was resolved. The Hollywood Reporter recently revealed that the Air actor Chris Messina has also joined the cast of the upcoming film in the role of a public defender.
Along with Hoult and Collette, the movie is also set to star Gabriel Basso, Zoey Deutch, Leslie Bibb, and Kiefer Sutherland. Clint Eastwood will not be starring in the movie and has taken directing and producing roles in the film’s production. There is not much available about the movie’s release schedule.
