Hello everybody,

Do you have some news about Clint’s next project ?

Cinematographer Yves Bélanger said that Clint could start shooting a new picture next spring.

But he didn’t mention any particular project.

When The Mule was released in France on January 23, I have read many reviews of the film, which were mostly

positive.

A couple of them (for instance, Le Journal du Dimanche, which can be translated as The Sunday) mentioned that Clint’s

next film might be Impossible Odds. At this point, it’s still a rumor.

What do you think about that ? Do you want Clint to make Impossible Odds ?

Although things could change, I think Clint has probably moved on from "Impossible Odds." Once he quits a project to make another film, he usually doesn't go back to make the film he quit.

I personally would like to see Clint move away from telling fact-based stories, especially true-life stories of heroism/biopics. I am hoping that the success of "The Mule," which was only loosely based on a real person, and wasn't a tale of heroism/a biopic, will inspire him to start telling more fictional stories. I think a big reason that "The Mule" did so well was because it was a heavily fictionalized story that was very different than those other films.

Thank you for answering, AKA23 !
I agree with you. Clint has already made a lot of biopics. And I think that his best one is still Bird.
And of course, he told many fact-based stories like the Iwo Jima movies, Changeling, Invictus, J. Edgar, Jersey Boys, American Sniper, Sully and The 15:17 to Paris. The Mule and White Hunter Black Heart were fictionalized stories.
I don’t know what would « Impossible Odds » bring to Clint Eastwood’s movies now.
But officially, Clint didn’t quit « Impossible Odds ». Maybe he just postponed it.
But if he really quit it, I wouldn’t be sad.
I would like to see him telling other fictionalized stories too.
An other western would be a

This may sound weird but I'd like Clint played an exorcist priest.

An exorcist priest like Max Von Sydow in The Exorcist ?
Why not ? Clint played Preacher in Pale Rider.
And in the opening sequence of Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Clint is disguised as a preacher.

Yes, why not ?
If I’m right, Spencer Tracy played in a theatrical version of The Old Man and The Sea.
But I don’t think that Clint is still looking for many roles.
Probably, Clint will stay behind the camera in his next picture.

I don't know, but I'd speculate it is a documentary about a person who makes "art" from wood using a chainsaw ... as opposed to one about a soulful and creative chainsaw killer.

Maybe something like her: https://www.mybluprint.com/article/meet-griffon-ramsey-chainsaw-artist-and-believer-in-magic

I don't know, there's kind of a ring to a soulful and creative chainsaw killer (assuming it was fictional of course). ;D :D
