Cannes 2017 Unveils Official Schedule, Adds Masterclasses With Clint Eastwood and Alfonso Cuarón
Quote
As is tradition, the Cannes Film Festival has unveiled its official schedule just days before the creme de la creme of festivals kicks off next week. Buried in an impressively stacked lineup are two brand new and delightfully unexpected additions: masterclasses with Clint Eastwood and Alfonso Cuarón, both listed as part of their Cannes Classics slate.

Eastwood’s class is slated for two hours on Sunday, May 21. The previous day, Cannes will screen Eastwood’s 1992 Western classic, “Unforgiven.” Eastwood is a long-time Cannes regular, screening films such as “Changeling,” “Pale Rider,” “Bird,” “Absolute Power,” and “Mystic River” at the festival over the years.

In 1994, he served as President of the Official Selection jury, which ultimately picked Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” as their Palme d’Or winner.

This is pretty cool. I'm sure that many here are familiar with this but I am not. What is a Masterclass at Cannes? What is Clint going to be doing exactly? Will this be similar to what he has done in the past at festivals (him sitting for an interview and talking about his career) or will he be doing something different here?

Clint Eastwood Does Not Rule Out a Return to Westerns
Quote
CANNES, France (Reuters) - Clint Eastwood does not rule out making another Western, he said on Saturday as he presented a 25th anniversary restored copy of "Unforgiven" at the Cannes Film Festival.

"When I read the ("Unforgiven") script 25 years ago, I always thought that this would be a good last Western for me to do," said the 86-year-old actor-director.

"And it was the last Western, because I have never read one that worked as well as this one since that.

"But who knows, maybe something will come up in the future," said Eastwood, who made his name in the TV series "Rawhide" and the so-called spaghetti Westerns of the 1960s, now considered classics.

Clint Eastwood Says ‘We’ve Lost Our Sense of Humor’
By Stewart Clarke

Having mostly eschewed acting for directing in recent years, Eastwood’s last on-screen performance was in 2012’s “The Trouble With the Curve.” He said he missed performing “once in a while but not often,” but added he plans to return at some point, “I did a lot of it for a long time. I’ll visit it again someday.”

Oh I wish it were true! Rather than reflecting an actual intention, this sounds like something he might say for his fans. Similar to maybe he'll return to "Dirty Harry" again if someone came up with a good script, but I so would love to see him act again!

That sounds like he could mean it, but it could be that he's waiting on a part he'd like to play.

The entire Master Class has now been posted. Unless you speak French, I'd recommend skipping the first 4 minutes.

One thing I noticed was that when his recently announced project, "The 15:17 to Paris," was brought up, Clint said he was flirting and fooling with it. It was thought to be his next project, but his responses make his involvement seem more tentative than what was initially reported. His discussion of this is about 42 minutes in.

Oh, how I hope he makes another movie! He can't end with Trouble With the Curve, he deserves a much better ending to his acting career than that.

Do it, Clint!
