Great reminder and explanation too, Saman Moradkhani !

I agree with you.
I remember I was so happy when Clint won for Million Dollar Baby. I think he deserved it.
Million Dollar Baby is probably Clint Eastwood's best picture along with Unforgiven, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Mystic River, Bird, A Perfect World,
The Bridges of Madison County and Letters from Iwo Jima.
American Sniper and Sully are pretty good too but not like these films above.
The Outlaw Josey Wales, Bird, A Perfect World and The Bridges of Madison County were snubbed by the Academy, in my opinion.
I don't say that they should have won but nominated at least.
Could The Mule be the dark horse of the year ? I hope so but I don't know.
We have to know its release date first.

Couldn't agree more.

Warner Bros is able to support two pictures at the same time.
For example, in 2007, we had two Warner Bros movies at the Oscars: Martin Scorsese's The Departed and Clint Eastwood's Letters From Iwo Jima.
Of course, The Departed was the big winner.
So, I don't think that A Star is Born is a threat for The Mule. At this point, The Mule has nothing to lose. I mean in the Oscar race.
Nobody talks about The Mule in the press. There's no buzz. We don't know its release date yet.
The question is: how good will The Mule be ?
Gran Torino wasn't even nominated. It was probabaly snubbed. Maybe it came too late in the Oscar race.
In my opinion, The Mule should be better than Gran Torino in order to have a chance to be nominated.
If The Mule is considered Oscar worthy, it will get a December release date for sure.

Great reminder and great explanation.
let's have another reminder;
Back in 2004, no one knew that the ace of awards season was gonna be Million Dollar Baby.
it was a dark horse. no one thought about that.
no one considered it.
no one talked about it.
everyone was talking about The Aviator.
And at the last minute, January, Million Dollar Baby shocked everyone.
Roger Ebert called it "the best picture of the year"
and the rest is history.
Hope The Mule has the same formula as Million Dollar Baby.

Although, I guess A Star is Born, already flying so high at Venice, is the major threat for releasing of The Mule in time for Oscars. WB may decide to push hard for their best shot. But again, this is Eastwood. and he can surprise everyone around.

Warner Bros hopes Clint shows them The Mule as soon as possible.

Look at this article:

Great update Hocine. thank you for sharing.
Simply I cannot wait until next year to see this one. My blood Clint is at the lowest level. I hope WB find it great and give it an Oscar race release date which can be late December/ early January. Some rave reviews out there are claiming that Robert Redford has a serious chance in upcoming Oscar for his last role in a feature film. I hope Eastwood joins him in that category, for one last time, maybe.

Bradley is truly one of the finest actors of his generation and also one of Eastwood's oldest admirers. He has a great amount of passion toward Clint and it makes his collaboration with him a personal one. As he always says, he is always looking for Eastwood.

The mystery of Andy Garcia’s involvement has been solved. I have received confirmation from a source close to the production that Andy Garcia plays the head of the drug cartel in “The Mule.”
That is just fantastic. He will add so much talent to the cast and too much pleasure to the screen.

Someone has to block the action when Clint is setting up the shot. Or are you wondering why they needed two?
No, I just wonder why two were needed.

On IMDb's page for The Mule, other crew section, there are 2 actors for Clint Eastwood's stand-in.  ??? ???

While I'm still not 100% convinced that Andy Garcia is acting in this one, I think that's the most likely scenario. He's an actor, and he has been pictured with Eastwood, but I can't understand why if he's in this why he was never announced as part of the cast. The IMDB site was also updated with every actor under the sun that appears in the movie, many of which I've never even heard of, and he still hasn't been added. I can't think of another Eastwood film where such a recognizable actor appeared as part of the cast but was never announced as joining. Does anybody else find that to be odd?
Well, I can't remember a similar case to this one. Andy Garcia is not a small name in this industry. if not as an actor, he might have served as a composer or maybe producer? he has produced some works and also composed soundtracks for some pictures. But there is no rich career as a scriptwriter.

Agree with the above, but there's one more mystery to be solved: Is Andy Garcia involved with "The Mule," and if so, in what capacity?
Acting I reckon.

Hello everybody !
According to IMDb, The Mule is in post-production now.
Its page was updated on August 3rd.
I think that it will be ready before 2019.
Usually, Joel Cox starts to edit the film during the shooting.
Indeed, he's one of the fastest editor in Hollywood.
We will probably see the trailer in October or November.
The question is will Warner Bros be convinced of the final product ?
And who is the music composer ?
Well- that was quick, typical Eastwood style.
and yes. the movie is expected to be released by the end of the year in December or early January. simply can't wait.
If you ask me, this can be WB's frontrunner for award season alongside with A Star is Born. regarding the composer, I can guess that Christian Jacob who has been working with Eastwood since Sully is doing the score again. Maybe Eastwood himself.

You definitely appear to be right based on Garcia's Instagram updates, but where else have you heard Andy Garcia's name mentioned in connection with this project? I haven't been able to find anything on it. Do you have a link you can share with us?
On Twitter mostly. people were using his name along with Clint and Bradley on their tweets about the mule. they were like hey guys, Clint and Andy Gacia are in town and so on.

Andy Garcia hasn't been announced as part of the cast. Could he be consulting with Eastwood on the score, since the photo description said they were taking a "piano break?" I know he's an actor but I'm not that familiar with his career. Is Andy Garcia also a musician?
I've heard his name related to this project several times on different occasions. maybe he is actually in this movie as an actor. there is another post on his Instagram citing "it's a wrap! #themule. So it is a strong signal by which he may actually be a part of this one.

Thank you, Saman !

Thank you, Hocine. I enjoyed it.
This man never stops to amaze me. For the last 2 months, he has been traveling constantly and yet there is no sign of boredom or exhaustion, aged 88. I wonder what are they doing in California?

According to Steve Stephen S. Campanelli's post on Instagram, filming of the main unit of The Mule is over, but the 2nd unit directing is still underway. So this means that cameras are still rolling.

Hi Saman !
According to the IMDb, The Mule is still filming but maybe the page is not updated yet.
Anyway, the shooting is finished or is about to be finished.
Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino were shot in less than 40 days.
So, Clint is able to shoot fast and to make great pictures.
Do you know what happened to Robert Lorenz ?
His last collaboration with Clint is American Sniper in 2014.
So, it seems that Kristina Rivera and Tim Moore replaced him.
Hi Hocine;
thanks for your participation.
As you mentioned Eastwood is a pure genius regarding his pace in movie making. He is a true natural artist with most genuine instincts which he trusts most. but his last movie was a flop and im still wondering why he decided to make that movie, some critics claimed that he may have lost his magic wand. I don't agree with that. let's hope that The Mule is gonna be one of his great works if it is going to be his last role in his stellar career.

What is your best guess? Do you consider this one an award season contender? regarding the story the cast and crew.

Someone must have told her to take this down since we can't see it anymore. What about this is confusing, though? It's been filming since June 4th, and so it doesn't surprise me that they are now done. Now all that there is left to do is wait for the release date to be announced.

Confused about its release date; is it a 2018 release of 2019? and there is also a feeling that this kinda fast shooting might affect the quality of Clint's storytelling power.

According to Kristina Rivera, the producer, the filming of The Mule is wrapped up and finished. Almost 2 months of shooting. Hyped and confused. share your thoughts.
