I've just seen this website mention a project called The Ballad of Stompin' Tom that Clint has supposedly decided to do next even before 'The Jersey Boys' project which is before 'A Star is Born'.

I can't verify the validity of the report and it is weird that they say that it will be written and directed by Clint but here is the website link:

The Ballad of Stompin' Tom starring Bryan Brown and Shania Twain

Is this yet another musical from Clint? Interesting stuff!

If so I can imagine AKA23 is not going to be happy:

I'm doubting this news as it references The Hollywood Reporter but there is nothing on THR's website about it.

Will probably turn out to be the rumour mill at work so take it with a pinch of salt!

I note that the dateline was:

That may have had something to do with it.

No offense taken, guys. There's nothing wrong with a little humor at my expense every once in awhile ;)

I pinned this as an April Fool's joke almost immediately, but this project actually sounds more interesting to me than both of Clint's upcoming musical projects. I really like Shania Twain ;)

So as suspected by both KC and AKA23 (and not by gullible old me :D) the Stompin' Tom story has been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter as an April Fools joke.

Several Canadian newspapers were reporting it funnily enough..a case of wanting something to be true perhaps?

Thanks, JSE. I fixed your link, which wasn't working.

Maybe some Canadian will make this movie some day. :)
