Since this is now all "official," I've changed the thread title to "Production Information and News." We'll post all updates here until the time comes when the reviews start coming in, and then we'll start a new thread for that. :)

I notice that the logline which is provided that describes the film states that Eastwood will be playing Earl Stone and not, as thought before, Leo Sharp. So although this film may be based on Sharp's experiences, it sounds like this may be heavily fictionalized, which may give them more creative freedom and allow for this to feel more like an original rather than an entirely fact-based story.

I'm getting more enthused about this project. It's a pretty cool bookend to Clint's first starring role, which also featured a mule in what might be the scene that kicked off his career. Of course, that's only if this winds up being Clint's last performance. And, Clint isn't showing signs of slowing down yet.

That wasn't a mule in A Fistful of Dollars, though. It was a horse. A very old horse, but a horse. The Baxter men were just making fun of it by calling it a mule.

Of course, there was also Two Mules for Sister Sara pretty early on in Clint's career.

Yes, mules factor in prominantly in his career, even so-called mules (actually, The Mule is a so-called mule as well).  ;)

That came to my mind too. Its a story inspired by true events I guess. So "inspired" here is the key word to consider. Now it seems like a more fictionalized story than a real-life based, detailed drama. And it is actually great. Having Nick Schenk as the scriptwriter, whose work on Gran Torino and The Judge were both amazing, I am super hyped about this feature. Thank almighty Clint is still around.

This is always such an exciting time to be a Clint fan as we learn who will be cast in his next movie. The best part of that article is that Deadline says this will be a fictional story, so it will be his first as director since Gran Torino, which was also written by Nick Schenk.

If I were Clint, Id try to get some of the cast of Breaking Bad for the shady drug criminals in this movie. They were all great, and seem perfect for this.

Earlier this month, Eastwood's long-time editor, Joel Cox, gave a wide ranging interview on editing. The whole interview is worth reading, but in it, he broke some pretty big news, and that is that he will be back as editor for Clint's "next film." So, I think that means that he will be returning as editor on "The Mule." If this ends up happening, it will be the first film he has edited for Eastwood since "American Sniper" in 2014.

Quote
HULLFISH: One of your old assistants cut Clintís last movie, The 15:17 to Paris.

COX: Yes, Blu Murray. Iíll tell you what happened here: after American Sniper, Clint wanted to take some time off. I took another job and then when he started to do Sully, I was already working on another film. Then I was doing this film and he started 15:17 to Paris.

For Blu, it was a great opportunity. He learned a lot from me and now heís off doing his own thing. I am going to be back editing with Clint on his next picture. I like working for Clint. After 40 years, Iíd say Clint and I are soulmates.  I could look at things and know exactly what he was going for. That man knows every scene, how itís going to be in his mind.
