Without a doubt yes . John Waynes best westerns ( in my opinion ) were during his later years  . The only problem being " how to top Unforgiven ? "
Clint should star and hand over the directors chair to someone like Peterson , Spielberg or anyone else he can trust . That way the Unforgiven comparison would be minimised .

Yes I would like to see a further western however I think Clint  would prefer to use a different genre for his future movies.    ;)

And in 1992 the question was how he would top Josey Wales.

In my opinion, it doesn't need to top anything. It needs to breathe some life into a dying genre.

I can't decide. I saw him the other night on TV & I think he's too old looking for another western*. Maybe he could direct it but I don't know.




*Sorry Clint.

Both Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones look older and they both did great in the genre in 2003.

You're never too old for a western.  I'd LOVE another Eastwood western. And, I agree with Adam that it wouldn't have to "top" Unforgiven... it just has to be a damn good film. And I'm sure it would be.

I chose "if he stars in it and directs it". Clint should definitely direct his own westerns. No one could do it better.

You could follow up unforgiven with unforgiven 2. He still has a boy and girl and probably just moved into a town that didnt hear about him. Maybe the nearsited boy and the town whore got together and went with them. Morgans character had a woman and child i believe, maybe they went with them as well, clint could have become a sherriff of a new town and a friend of little bills' came to town and found him..hmmmmmm :-\

He moved to San Francisco, where he prospered in dry goods.

The Schofield Kid and which "town whore"? There were six of them. In any case, I think the whores had enough of the Kid.

Just a woman: Sally Two Trees.

I highly doubt that. I guess you didn't notice Sally giving Munny the "evil eye"? Going with Munny after Ned was killed would NEVER happen.

Munny prospered in dry goods, besides... Munny a sheriff? And, did Little Bill even have a friend? All he had to leave behind at the end of his life was the house he was building.

Making a sequel to Unforgiven would be a mistake. It was perfect the way it was, and had the perfect ending.

Two movies. Open Range, starring Duvall (b.  1931) and The Missing, starring Jones (b. 1946). 1946? That is sixteen years younger than Clint, so I don't think the comparison is apt.

I said that he LOOKS older. Jones hasn't aged well. An example is in Space Cowboys where he was the youngest, but actually looked older than the others.

Adam, we posted at the exact same time (the two posts above your last). Don't think I ever saw that before, outside the Movie Night threads and such, anyway.

To me, Tommy Lee looks considerably younger than Clint (definitely not better, just younger). I thought he was too young for the role in Space Cowboys.

I agree with KC . As much as I like Tommy lee Jones and admired his performance in Space Cowboys ( a film I love by the way ) He was obviously the baby of the bunch . I heard a rumour that Sean Connery was originally thought of for the Jones character but I don't know if there's any truth to it .

I think Jones was perfect for the role of Hawk. Space Cowboys was a great movie. I'm just saying unless the new western is scripted so that Eastwood would appear old it would be a flop. I've seen a lot of good old actors ruin their reputations by doing horrible movies instead of retiring gracefully. For example:

1. James Coburn in Snow Dogs.
2. Robert Vaughn in Lewis & Dagget comercials.

After winning best picture and best director, I doubt that anything Clint does will be a fllop. Of course, he should play an older character like Duvall in Open Range or The Duke in The Shootist.

The Shootist sounds like a good role for Clint. But he already made a movie like it. Pale Rider.
