Here are my five reasons why I would love to see a Dirty Harry 6
1. Clint is in great shape for his age!
2. The actor can still give that awesome glare!
3. He can still shoot a gun!
4. He can still spout off one liners that Harry Callahan was famous for.
5. There are people like me who would go to the movies to see this. :)

More to the point, Clint has often said he won't, indeed shouldn't, do another Dirty Harry, no matter how much some of his fans seem to want it. The only possibility I see would be to give him some sort of small role in a film starring his son Scott as a new-generation Dirty Harry, or possibly as the original character in a prequel.

That is disappointing knowing the man himself has said no to another Dirty Harry film. I will just re watch the old ones and be happy then.

I have been noticing that Clint can be stubborn when he has made his mind up. OK, Harry 6 cannot have Clint being the Main Man.

You think there really might be a chance that Clint would appear in a minor role if his son was the lead? What do we have to work with here? I have not followed the news about Son Eastwood; what age range is he now? What kind of acting ability and/or star quality has he shown, and in what media?

There is always hope. And, you never know when the smallest bit of information can be important to help your success.

We don't really have anything to work with at all, just wishful thinking on the part of Clint's fans who can see Scott's resemblance to the youthful Clint.

Scott was born in 1986, so he's 28. Clint was 40 when he filmed the original Dirty Harry, which is why I was thinking a prequel might be appropriate. As for acting ability/star quality ... so far I've only seen him in tiny roles in his dad's movies, but he seems to be getting cast in larger parts. People magazine has a story about his upcoming lead role in The Longest Ride, where he plays a (rodeo) cowboy.

http://www.people.com/article/scott-eastwood-the-longest-ride-sex-symbol

Of course, even if someone came up with a Dirty Harry script for Scott, there is still zero evidence that Clint might be interested in taking another role in the same film.

^^^Yes, that's a great similarity.  For me, now's the perfect time for Scott to step into the role of Harry Callahan.  I posted earlier that it would be a good opportunity to see younger versions of his partners, some we're familiar with and others that we don't know about.  Not only that, we'd get insight as to just when he we called Dirty Harry and why (even though Eastwood mentions why in the first film).  If the first one with Scott proves entertaining and successful, who knows, we could have another 5 Dirty Harry movies.  I'd still love to see the first installment happen very soon, with Clint reprising his role, retired but called upon to help solve a cold case.  We would see what Harry's up to now, how he's dealing with retirment and current technology.  Dirty Harry with an iPad and iPhone!

On the other hand, who knows ... Scott may have no interest in taking on the role that made his father a star. He may want to make a career on his own (though in that case, he probably shouldn't be using the surname "Eastwood").

^^^Both good points, KC.  Only time will tell how all this plays out.  My guess is somewhere down the line there'll be a remake and it won't be very good.

KC, thanks for the good information!

OK, Scott has the good looks that could be the basis of being a star. I reckon that dad Clint could teach him to act. Can you imagine being a young actor and having the good luck of having Clint Eastwood give you acting lessons?

And surely Dad would take a minor role to help Son get a head start on a good acting career......

The age difference would put a prequel in about 1959. Wow, the cool old cars to be seen in period piece scenes. With enough good car specimens, there would be a significant demographic of car enthusiasts buying movie tickets just to see the cars.

Now, let's see....when did Smith Wesson begin to make the Model 29 44 Magnum. Uh oh, got to look it up, seems like it was some years later. Hope I'm wrong. Pretty sure that Ruger was making a 44 Magnum in the late '50s, the Super Blackhawk. Well, now, I'm getting interested, being as how the Super Blackhawk is my world's most favorite cartridge handgun, and would capture my attention right off. Could give rise to a sub-plot about Harry using the single action Ruger but then switching to the double action Smith Wesson, maybe in a harry 7.

I'm beginning to feel better about a Harry 6.
