Clint Eastwood will always be Rowdy Yates from the classic Western Rawhide to many of us. However, his career spans 60 years, with acting and filmmaking credits under his belt. Eastwood gained international stardom after starring as "The Man with no Name" in Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy.
Now, the actor is gearing up for his next project (a legal drama), which will also be his final body of work. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor-director won't be in front of the camera for his finale. He's producing the movie along with Adam Goodman, the former production president of Paramount. Of course, the film will be another project for Eastwood's longtime studio home, Warner Bros., called Juror #2.
"Juror #2 will take place during a murder trial and follows a juror (to be played by Nicholas Hoult), who realizes that he may have caused the victim's death," THR reports. "He must decide whether to manipulate the jury to save himself, or reveal the truth and turn himself in. (Toni Collette) would play the prosecutor."
Eastwood, 93 years old, is one of the oldest filmmakers still working. The movie started filming in mid-June and is highly anticipated by supporters of the actor.
In 2021, the actor starred in a modern-day Western called Cry Macho; however, it was not well-received. And with a legacy like his, Eastwood wants to "ride off into the sunset with his head held high."
The actor had no problem securing roles after his success on Rawhide and the Dollars Trilogy. The then-new success helped him navigate to directing, where he often had major or minor roles in his films. Eastwood garnered various Oscar nominations for Best Director and Best Motion Pictures.
