After more than 60 years in the film industry, legendary actor-director Clint Eastwood has announced his retirement. The 92-year-old has officially set his final film project at Warner Bros, a studio where he has “strictly” stayed since his 2008 film Gran Torino. With almost 50 films to his name, including Oscar-nominated pictures like Invictus, American Sniper, Sully and Richard Jewell, Eastwood’s contribution to the industry has been nothing short of remarkable.
According to reports by DiscussingFilm, Eastwood’s final film will be a thriller titled Juror #2, although the studio has yet to confirm the title. The movie will focus on a juror in a murder trial who discovers that he may have been responsible for the victim’s death. The juror will face the dilemma of deciding whether to manipulate the jury to save himself or reveal the truth and turn himself in.
Sources close to the actor have revealed that Eastwood wants to retire completely after making Juror #2, which will be his 40th directed feature film. The project is being internally billed as his final film and will definitely see Eastwood direct the project. Although there is currently no start date for the upcoming film, it is expected to be a thrilling finale to a legendary career.
Approaching the age of 93, Eastwood is a four-time Oscar winner who has left an indelible mark on Hollywood. Fans and critics alike will undoubtedly miss his incredible talent and unique style, but his contributions to the film industry will continue to inspire and entertain for generations to come.
