The Dirty Harry Films / Re: Five Reasons For A Dirty Harry 6

Clint Eastwood is not interested in making sequels anymore.
He doesn’t want to repeat himself.
I’d rather see him making an other western than a Dirty Harry sequel.
He told that he made too many Dirty Harry sequels.
Maybe one or two.
The Dead Pool was made to thank Warner Bros for having supported Bird, for example.

Actually, Clint Eastwood directed one or two scenes of Dirty Harry.
In fact, Don Siegel was ill one day of shooting.
So Clint replaced him and directed the scene where a man on a rooftop is saved from suicide by Harry.
The other scene is the confrontation between Harry and Alice, a gay, at MountDavidson park.

Music composer Lalo Schiffrin said that on the set of Magnum Force, he saw Clint calling for many shots.
However, Ted Post was the director of Magnum Force. But the collaboration between Clint and Ted Post wasn’t so happy on Magnum Force because Clint became a director and had his own vision.
They disagree many times.

Clint hasn't got a best actor academy award till now...

Clint Eastwood was nominated for Best actor academy award twice.
The first time, it was in 1993 for Unforgiven (1992) and the last time was in 2005 for Million Dollar Baby (2004).
Al Pacino won it for Scent of a Woman in 1993 and Jamie Foxx won it for Ray in 2005.
It seems that the Academy is not really fond of Clint Eastwood’s acting style and likes performances which require physical transformations. These last years, the Academy gave Best Actor oscar to actors who portray real people.
It would be great if Clint Eastwood finally won an oscar for Best Actor in leading role but we never know what is going to happen. Moreover, Clint doesn’t make pictures for oscars. I hope that The Mule will give Clint a great role and I hope that it will be a great movie.

In my opinion, the best Clint Eastwood movies as a director are:
Unforgiven, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, Bird, A Perfect World,
The Bridges of Madison County, Letters from Iwo Jima, Honkytonk Man, High Plains Drifter, Pale Rider, Bronco Billy,
Play Misty for Me, Gran Torino, White Hunter Black Heart, Changeling, American Sniper, Sully

These films represent the best of Clint Eastwood career as a director.

I don’t know but I would say between 30 M$ and 60 M$.
Sully cost 60 M$, American Sniper cost more than 58 M$, Jersey Boys cost 40 M$.
His most expensive movie remains Flags of Our Fathers which cost 90 M$.
In the Mule, Bradley Cooper must be the highest paid actor.

Yes, I think so.
If Warner Bros likes it, this movie can have an American Sniper schedule. Or a Gran Torino one.
The Mule sounds good to me and is one of the coolest Eastwood projects in recent years.
Earl Stone is a character who seems close to Walt Kowalski, Frankie Dunn, Luther Whitney, William Munny or Tom Highway.
In other words, it's an Eastwoodian character. Pure and simple.
