AKA, you are sure that it was released in 4K?

I think it was, KC. The Amazon link referred to a 4K UHD streaming option not being available currently, due to some kind of license issue, which suggests that it was available in the past.

Also, there is a site that tracks 4K discs in order to determine which ones were natively produced in 4K (Real 4K) and which ones were instead upscaled to 4K (Fake 4K). The website has "In the Line of Fire" listed as Real 4K. The list is alphabetical: https://4kmedia.org/real-or-fake-4k/3/

I don't know if this will affect the making of this movie or not, but apparently, there are upcoming plans to make a television series on this. If I were Eastwood, I wouldn't want to do a movie on this if there would soon be a TV series on the exact same events. The movie will likely be made first, but it seems like they would both cover similar ground, and a televised series would have much more time to develop the story compared to the movie.

I recently bought a 4K TV, and wanted to watch "In the Line of Fire" on it since it's my favorite Eastwood movie. But, when I tried to stream it on Amazon, I got this: https://www.amazon.com/Line-Fire-Ultra-HD/dp/B00SG6YG6O. It's also on ITUNES, but it appears to only be in HD, not 4K.

I can't find it in 4K anywhere, including on a BluRay 4k disc for purchase. Do any of you have this? Has it been discontinued? I'm trying to figure out how I can watch this movie in 4K.

Thanks for everyone's contributions. I do find it interesting that Eastwood appears to be returning to direct a project that he passed on 5 years ago. There must be something that really attracts Eastwood to this project, and that's kind of intriguing.

Well, folks, it looks like Clint may be returning to direct this project. He was previously interested in making this a number of years ago.

I was kind of hoping that the success of "The Mule" might inspire him to direct more fictionalized stories. What does everyone think about Clint potentially making this his next film?

Saman, we already have a thread for this potential project, since Clint was previously circling it a few years ago, so I'm going to restart this discussion there.

An interview from December has been posted on a Japanese site. It's not clear why this is only being posted now, but   in it, there's this exchange that I thought board members might be interested in:

Would it be fair to say "The Mule" will not be your last movie?

Oh yeah, definitely not. Definitely not my last.

I think he's likely thinking about his work as director, rather than as an actor, but it's still noteworthy.

Clint also says that he first learned about Leo Sharp from an article he read. It seems from his answer that the article led him to be intrigued about the story, which caused him to discover that a script for a movie version of Sharp's story existed. I could be wrong, but that's the impression I got after reading his answer, and to me, that's new information.

I don't know about "accomplished" ... but Matt is correct! :D

I was so pleasantly surprised to see that scene start off with a woman playing the trumpet. It was a rare thing way back in my day and I don't think it's too common even in our enlightened era!

AKA, if Charlie Parker played the trumpet, that is news to me. His friend Dizzy Gillespie was a great jazz trumpeter, though.

It sounds like I need to brush up on my musical instruments!

Great game, guys. Thanks for playing with me!

I think you're right. I was so very close, but we need KC to confirm. And, there's another Clint tie in as well, "Bird," since Charlie Parker was another accomplished trumpeter :)

#13: No.

(I think Matt may have it! :) )

Sounds like he does! Take it away, Matt.  :)

11
I'm thinking this is from the polka scene, Matt.

12
You can't ask two questions at once! :knuppel2:

Is it the saxophone?

13
Is it the saxophone/some kind of musical instrument?

14
I don't know. HAHA ;D

15
Matt asked a question.

16
Okay, so the item is smaller than a breadbox, but not that much smaller, since KC initially had a different answer to this question, and not only is the object only seen once, but the character associated with the object is also only seen once. That really does remove many of the inanimate objects in the film, so why don't we know what this is now?  :tickedoff:

17
Is this object associated with a character that is in multiple scenes?

18
I honestly have no idea, Matt! All the prominent objects in the film that I was thinking of have been eliminated.

19
Okay, Matt. So, here's what we've got: It's an inanimate object that is not associated with Earl, any of his family members, the cartel, or the cops. The object is probably not in the first 30 minutes of the movie, and the object is in an indoor scene, and is only shown once.

20
Is it an outdoor scene?
