The media inflicts a new controversy of the highest level in the field of ridicule! If Eastwood is shooting in Atlanta, it is obviously not to defy Hollywood's boycott of an anti-abortion state, it is for the one and only simple reason that the facts described took place there.  Is it so difficult to understand ?

This is exactly what I was afraid of to happen. Ridiculous at its highest level. I'm afraid that this issue becomes an excuse so they can hammer Clint and his movie. Don't those snowflakes ask themselves that is Clint Eastwood the only director and producer who works in Georgia right now? NO. There are so many productions underway this summer in Georgia. so why in the world is it only Clint Eastwood who becomes a target?

I think this is very obviously true, especially since Clint is supportive of abortion rights himself. I'd be shocked if he were in favor of the fetal heartbeat abortion ban. However, he's never been one to let politics get in the way of the movie that he wants to make, and I think he wants to film in Atlanta because the events were set there, and that's what he sees as most authentic and best for the story. But, I think a case can be made that Clint has probably gotten more conservative in recent years, or at least has consistently chosen to emphasize those views. "Trouble with the Curve," "American Sniper," "Sully," "The 15:17 to Paris, this movie, and arguably even "The Mule," all have pretty strong conservative undertones. Eastwood's never been an arch conservative, so those criticisms are just wrong, but it's kind of difficult to deny that all of these films are kind of thematically of a piece, and they all seem to revolve around the promotion of moderately conservative values and the rejection of parts of liberal orthodoxy. I think his desire to criticize, or at least comment on, what he sees as the overreach of the media today, and what he views as their tendency to be less fact based and more ideologically driven, is likely one of his main motivations for making "Richard Jewell."

That controversy is just ridiculous.
Clint Eastwood became a target because heís like a big fish for the media.
Clint is a filmmaker above all.
If Clint is allowed by the official authority to shoot his movie in Georgia, whatís the matter ?
The main events described by the script took place in the State of Georgia.
So, itís logical to shoot the film there.

Unfortunately, this is radical left we are dealing with. They just want to boycott everything. everything that is in contrast with their opinion. they can't understand nor can they accept this very simple fact that politics should be kept out of art. any form of art.
And more surprisingly, they don't see this obvious fact that not only Clint but also the majority of Hollywood producers and companies are producing movies in Georgia this summer. But as you said, Clint Eastwood is a target. a perfect one.

I found that article from Deadline, at least intriguing:

https://deadline.com/2019/07/next-absence-of-malice-pt-2-here-comes-richard-jewell-1202640178/

It's a great article. Controversies are waiting for this movie.

I only remember a little bit about this story when it all happened, so I'm looking forward to the movie.

watch this short documentary on the post-1996 Olympic bombing events and the sufferings Richard Jewell went through for 88 days to see how great this story is. highly recommended.

I remember that Eric Rudolph was the guy who actually did the bombing, and that it was during the Atlanta Olympics, and that Jewell was wrongfully accused and later exonerated. That's about it. This could be like "Sully," where many people who are unfamiliar with these events may not actually be aware that there's a more compelling story to be told here than might be obvious at first glance.

I agree with you, AKA23.
Richard Jewell could be like Sully, in many ways.
But I think that Richard Jewell will be more dramatic and perhaps more ambitious than Sully.
I like Sully and I think that technically, itís a good movie.
Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart gave good performances.
But Sully didít give me big emotions like A Perfect World, The Bridges of Madison County or Million Dollar Baby for instance. Even American Sniper is more moving than Sully, in my opinion.
So, I hope that Richard Jewell will give me some emotions.
I suppose that it will depend on the direction that the movie will take.

Loved to have eavesdropped on that conversation between Clint and Hamm.  I hope Hamm has a decent size role in the movie....
