Here we are in mid-March with no new project announced so it looks like nothing for 2022.

Clint typically takes less than six weeks to shoot a film. It could be June before he announcing another project and it still could be release it before 2023. 8)

If there's one thing I know about Clint Eastwood, it's that he doesn't just sit back. Always active, whatever the form.

When Cry Macho was released, Clint stated that he had no project.
However, an article from Variety announced on April 15, 2021, that Malpaso is making Conviction for Warner Bros.
That project is about that famous lawyer, Clarence Darrow.
It could be still in development.
At this point, nothing says that it will be his next project.
During these last years, Clint shot his films in summer or in fall.
I hope that he will be back.

hello everyone,
it's been almost 2 years and yet there is no word on Clint's next project. this total silence made me to take it on twitter and asked his publicist, SUZANNE, what Eastwood is busy with right now. She said that a film and a documentary have been finalized at WB. She continued that she can provide no more information on the matter.

I can't say for sure that this account is legit. But I really hope that this is true. what do you think?

Well, I hope that we will have some good news before the end of this year.
Warner Bros seems so messy today. Then, we have to be patient.
On the other hand, I would understand if Clint wanted to slow down and spend time with his family, his children and grandchildren.

Just read an insta post about Mr Eastwood attending a doc film premiere.He is refereed as the narrator  of the documentary, the subject of which is the Monteray Bay National Marine Sanctuary. I suppose this is the doc mentioned from "Suzanne" and expect further good news asap😀

Let's hope Eastwood's next film is not about Clarence Darrow. About 24 people if that many would go see that. I'm not even including the people in the website...

According to IMDb, that Clarence Darrow's film, called Convicton, is still in development status.
Then, this is unlikely his next film.
Anyway, I agree with you, Perry: after two box office failures, Clint should make an entertaining and crowd-pleasing film.
A project which could attract some A-list stars.

Apparently Clint Eastwood was on Twitter last night answering questions from his fans via Suzanne's official account. My question was answered by legend himself, I hope. Hallelujah.
İ asked about his next project and this was his answer:

"Hello. I do have a project that's just been finalized. We are in the development stages there. Suzanne keeps my Schedule busy. Thanks for your Question."

Suzanne told me in an another occasion that this project won't happen until next year.

What's your take on this.
İ cannot wait more. 🥲

Saman, thanks for posting about this. I don't have Twitter, but I think that we would all like to read the questions and answers from Eastwood. Would it be possible for you to copy and paste, and/or screenshot those for us and post to this thread?

I do know that there are several Twitter accounts purporting to be from Eastwood, but I don't think any of them are his, as one of his daughters said in the past that he doesn't do social media or have Twitter. I am somewhat skeptical that Eastwood would do this, as I can't recall him ever interacting with his fans in this way before, but I assume this Twitter account is a verified account from his publicist. Is that correct?

İ guess it is AKA23. SUZANNE posts time to time some official written announcements with Maplaso logo amd Eastwood's signature on it. Of she wasn't Eastwood's legal representative it would be a felony doing this.
Regarding all the questions and answers, sure, I'll do it with screenshots soon.

It took some digging through everybody's opinion on Clint Eastwood's joke from 50 years ago (RIP Sacheen Littlefeather), but I managed to find this account, which advertises itself as belonging to Malpaso and being managed by a Suzanne, supposedly Clint's publicist: https://twitter.com/sue_filmMalpaso

The tweets there are protected, meaning I cannot see them without the approval of the owner of this account. I've sent my request, we'll see what happens. Overall though, it doesn't look too professional - the account name is hardly elegant (Clint Eastwood Official_Malpaso Productions. instead of something simple like Malpaso Productions or just Malpaso), no blue tick signifying it's an official verified account (though not all official accounts have them), handle is something weird to spell out (@sue_filmMalpaso instead of something easier to type and remember, like @Malpaso or @MalpasoProd), the bio is written sloppily with inconsistent interpunction, and so on. And in general, what sense does it make for a promotional account to protect its tweets? I thought it's supposed to reach as many people as possible.

Well, I guess it's not entirely out of the question that it is in fact an official account; maybe it's just that the people at the company are not very familiar with social media. Who knows. Clint has said he has never sent an e-mail in his life, so perhaps hiring social media specialists is not exactly his forte. I'll wait and see if I get approval - currently, the account has around 1 000 followers.

Next up: Clint Eastwood on TikTok!

LB, thanks for this additional digging and analysis. As I stated, I am skeptical that this account is real, but we don't really know. That's part of why I asked Saman to post the screen shots of the questions and answers, which I think he's planning on doing, so we could analyze whether this sounded like him or not. It just seems odd that at 92 he has all the sudden decided to start communicating with his fans, and doing so on Twitter, when he doesn't even have an account and historically hasn't engaged on social media. He also doesn't tend to announce new projects, even in an informal way, without talking about the details of the project, and usually doesn't do so until shortly before filming begins.

Hi everyone,
Apparently, according to the Clint Eastwood Forever Twitter account, another Clint Eastwood Q&A session will be hosted by The Official Clint Eastwood Twitter account, this Friday.

Though I do not have a Twitter account, I was able to copy and paste this:

I have now got access to this account's tweets and I'm able to see the transcript from the latest supposed Q&A session.

I don't know, very few things seem in place - why would he be doing this now? Why is the text formatting so terrible? But the answers themselves, they're not so bad. At the very least this is someone who is familiar with Clint's body of work and persona. The responses are usually short, concise, laconic even - for instance, somebody asks "why have you never made a film with this particular actor?", the account responds something like "the right project never came up". Sounds his style. Short, to the point, undramatic. When asked about favorite films he made, the account mentions Unforgiven and Josey Wales, which I believe I've seen Eastwood actually say. Speaking about favorite actors that they worked with, they mention Meryl Streep - again, a sentiment I believe Clint shares. Most of these questions relate to things he's already mentioned in earlier interviews, so someone could absolutely just be a pretty good Eastwood fan, but the account also mentions Count Basie as being his idol, which I don't think I've ever seen before.

I don't suspect Clint Eastwood of ever being within a 10 feet radius of a computer keyboard, so even if it is him, my guess is he'd have somebody type it out for him (as he has said he does with e-mails). I suppose that could potentially explain the spelling mistakes. There's also this tone of understatement that's prevalent in the responses, even more so than with Clint's usual way of speaking. But other than that, it looks okay. The details match up. The types of phrases and grammatical constructions match up. They are the important factors. The few things I found somewhat striking were the account's use of the word movie - I've always associated Clint with saying film more often - and an answer to a question about the Dollars trilogy poncho saying it was selected by Sergio Leone. I'm not sure about the true answer, but maybe some of you have better sources.

As for the account itself, I have to admit they seem to be in possession of some very rare Eastwood-related material. Watermarked photos and videos of Clint playing golf (which look all recent), of him attending premieres, galas, meetings, and even feeding his goose. I don't know, but it looks pretty real. And they're not even trying to sell me anything - usually, with fake accounts they try to reach as many people as possible and/or scam them into buying something. This account doesn't do that. So either they're playing some genius long game of scamming, or they're just not scamming.

And yes, they're planning to do another Q&A session on Friday, October 7th, "4PM-5PM USA time" (I take it they mean California time), with a plan to start gathering questions on Wednesday. We'll see. I guess it doesn't hurt to try.

Thank you, LB13

Indeed, those answers sound pretty good.

Among the musicians that Clint admired, Count Basie was occasionally mentioned by him, along with Charlie Parker and Lester Young.

Among the films he directed, Unforgiven and The Outlaw Josey Wales are surely his favorite ones, along with Bird, The Bridges of Madison County, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby and Letters From Iwo Jima. Sometimes, he also mentioned Bronco Billy. Honkytonk Man and A Perfect World would be among his personal favorites, though less mentioned that the others. Magnum Force would be his favorite Dirty Harry film.

In the early 1980s, Clint believed that Dirty Harry and The Outlaw Josey Wales were his best acting performances.

Yes, he liked working with some actors like Meryl Streep, Gene Hackman or Morgan Freeman.

They've just added a new tweet asking followers for any messages they have for Clint. He's supposed to come on at 3pm California time (roughly 7 hours from when I'm typing this). Not a Q&A session, since that's coming Friday. I remain unconvinced, but hey - maybe, just maybe, it is actually him.

On a side note, is this still the right topic to be discussing this Twitter account? I saw Speer started another one in General Discussion that talked about it. Hell, they even found that account before I did. Maybe that's where we could move to keep this topic here related to Clint's future projects.

Since Eastwood was supposed to be on twitter today, did anyone log on? Did they show him on there at the scheduled time?

This is definitely one of the more intriguing conversations we've had on here in recent years. The description of the account states that Suzanne is Clint Eastwood's "film editor." That's not true. Joel Cox is his film editor and has been for decades. Also, I thought I've heard Clint say several times that he bought the poncho himself, not Sergio Leone, but I researched a bit and it seems like there may have been more than one of the ponchos, one purchased by Clint, the other by Leone.
