According to IMDB, the American film score composer, Mark Mancina is in charge of Cry Macho's music. It's a great choice.  :smitten:

Yes, this is the first time that Mark Mancina works for Clint.
Mancina composed the music of Speed, Bad Boys, Twister and Training Day.
He worked for some Disney films like Tarzan or Moana.
According to Wikipedia, Mark Mancina lives in Carmel.

Thank you for your detailed lists, Honkytonkman

I think that I share most of your choices.

First of all, we can see that Sergio Leone and Don Siegel were the most influential directors in Clint Eastwood career.

About Tightrope, which was officially directed by Richard Tuggle, many books and studies said that it was actually directed by Clint.
Although there is no explicit statement about it, there are many clues given by those books and studies that can make us think that Clint was the true director of Tightrope. In fact, Richard Tuggle would have been uncomfortable with the shooting of some scenes, especially the scenes with Alison Eastwood: directing her in the presence of Clint would not have been easy for Richard Tuggle.
Plus, Tuggle had no experience about the technical aspects of filmmaking.
So, after some days of shooting, Clint would have replaced Richard Tuggle.
However, Clint would have allowed him to stay on the set during the rest of the shooting.
Finally, Tuggle was credited as the director of Tightrope: probably because Clint wanted to avoid some troubles with the Directors Guild of America and maybe because of the explicit content of the film.
In my selection, I considered Tightrope as a film directed by Clint.

My selection:

Best Clint performance for another director's film:

1. The Good The Bad and The Ugly
2. Dirty Harry
3. The Beguiled
4. A Fistful of Dollars

7. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
8. In the Line of Fire

8. White Hunter Black Heart
9. Play Misty for Me
10. Tightrope

Best Clint film with Clint:

2. Million Dollar Baby
3. The Outlaw Josey Wales
4. A Perfect World

Good news on the composer, although it is a bit disappointing that it appears it won?t be Arturo Sandoval. I really liked his score for The Mule. This is some pretty exciting news because I think it means that Clint likely has a rough cut of the film now. When he hired Sandoval, he showed him the film before hiring him to do the score.

As for Mancini, it appears he was one of the composers for Criminal Minds, and I?m a big fan of that show.

Wow... can't believe I've been away from this great site for so long and just finding out about this now!!  Really looking forward to seeing this one (of course I pretty much say this everytime a Eastwood film comes out).  Like others have said, this movie makes me think of a cross between A Perfect World and Honkytonk Man.

That is a funny anecdote, Gant :)

The Mule and Richard Jewell were released five months after the end of shooting
Cry Macho will be probably released in the second half of 2021
It also depends on how Warners executives will take it: a crowd pleaser, oscar worthy or both ?

Carmel? Haha, Clint is becoming lazy, he probably meets Mancina each weekend at the supermarket  ;D
I don't blame him, he's 90... ;)
Well, I will regret Sandoval too, but it will be a challenge for Mancina after all those blockbusters. I hope he will not forget it will be an intimate movie. If not, Clint will reminds him of it :knuppel2:

I do not know, Batfunk2
Maybe Arturo Sandoval was just unavailable, like cinematographer Yves Belanger
I am curious to know how Mark Mancina and Ben Davis got to work with Clint
Because of the pandemic, Clint had to adapt his work
Ben Davis and Mark Mancina have some good experience in movie business
So, I am optimistic for the work that they will bring to Cry Macho
I wonder if Joel Cox is the editor
I hope that we will know Cry Macho release date and have more elements very soon

Hocine, about Eastwood's lazyness, "je plaisante is" :p As James Brown , he's the hardest working man in showbusiness ;)You're surely right about the pandemic, Clint had to adapt to it.
I'm sure Bocina is competent but talented? I don't know his work.i'm not worried about the score because Music is discreet in recent  Eastwood movies. I love his homemade musical patterns but, for me, the last great original  soundtrack  was Lalo Schifrin's Sudden impact.
Lennie Niehaus work was adequate, no more, I prefer his jazz albums.

I like the music that Lalo Schifrin did for Sudden Impact too: in particular, the music which opens the film, This Side of Forever song, sung by Roberta Flack and the music that we can hear when Harry reappears like a vengeful angel at the end of the film.
The partnership between Clint and Schifrin was very effective: Coogan's Bluff, Kelly's Heroes, The Beguiled, Dirty Harry, Joe Kidd, Magnum Force, Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool.

I think that today, Lalo Schifrin can easily be connected with Clint, like Ennio Morricone.

However, Lennie Niehaus' contribution to Clint films, in the music department, was actually so tremendous.
He surely helped to redefine and shape the atmosphere of Clint films, from Tightrope to Blood Work.
He orchestrated the music of The Outlaw Josey Wales, The Enforcer, the Gauntlet and Escape From Alcatraz.
Lennie Niehaus also orchestrated all the Clint films from Mystic River to Gran Torino. What a great career !

Lennie Niehaus was really a key element of Clint Eastwood films.

The release date for "Cry Macho" has been announced and it's quite a ways off from now. This is a little disappointing for me, but at least we know when it's coming out now!

Quote
Warner Bros. will open Cry Macho from Clint Eastwood on Oct. 22. The multi-Oscar winner will star and direct the feature based on N. Richard Nash?s novel.

The pic will hit theaters and HBO Max day-and-date as that?s Warner Bros.? plan for its 2021 slate.

Good work, AKA! I was coming here to post the same information from a different source:

Quote
Cry Macho, the neo-western and potential awards contender directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, will open via Warner Bros in the US on October 22 this year.

The 1978-set film will also debut on Warner Bros' stablemate HBO Max for a limited period.

I bet that Eastwood will have shot another film in the meantime ... The date in any case allows us to hope for a return of the public to theaters at this time, and to put forward the hypothesis that, for the "usual" public of Eastwood, the desire to see this film at the cinema will be greater than the desire to see it on HBO. Personally, I will be in favor of a total boycott of HBO, because of their horrible pseudo-documentary "AllenVFarrow". #LeavingFarrowland.

Though it is too soon for any speculation, I agree with the fact that October 22 is a pretty good release date for the Oscars voters consideration.
Of course, that does not mean that Cry Macho will be an Oscar contender.
On the other hand, why did Warner Bros decide to release it on October 22, if it has no Oscar potential ?
Anyway, it would be great if Clint got an Oscar nomination for Best Actor at least :)
