Juror No. 2 is Clint Eastwood's 40th feature as a director. The upcoming film stars Nicholas Hoult, Toni Collette, Kiefer Sutherland and others
Clint Eastwood may not be the gun-slinging, broody cowboy anymore but he is still nothing short of an inspiration to all of us. The Dirty Harry actor was recently spotted in a couple of stills from the sets of his upcoming directorial Juror No. 2, which is being currently shot in the US state of Georgia. Almost everything seemed status quo in those stills until it dawned on the whole of social media that the man smiling away while at the job was actually 93 darn years old!
"I have so much respect for you on so many different levels. God bless," wrote one user in the comments section while another inquired about his secret to functioning as though he is in his prime at the age of 93. "I wish I have energy like you Clint.Amazing pal!" wrote another user to echo the sentiments of several others who wished to see the legend's movie on the big screen. Indeed, Clint Eastwood
Eastwood, at 93, is currently directing the 40th feature of his 52-year-long career as a filmmaker and should he continue at this rate, he surely has a couple more up his sleeve. Juror No. 2, starring Nicholas Hoult, Toni Collette, Gabriel Basso, Zoey Deutch, Chris Messina, Leslie Bibb and Kiefer Sutherland, is said to be about a murder trial jury member (Hoult) who "finds himself struggling with a serious moral dilemma". According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film then deals with how the juror is in a position to sway the verdict and potentially convict the wrong killer.
Chris Messina will play the defending attorney with Toni Collette portraying the prosecutor in the film.
Clint Eastwood has built a great legacy through his filmography which includes several titles wherein he plays the lead aside from directing them. Making his acting debut in 1955 with an uncredited role, Eastwood made his directorial debut with the 1971 psychological thriller Play Misty For Me and then chose to successfully juggle both acting and directorial careers.
Some of his most loved credits as a director include the 'Dirty Harry' franchise film Sudden Impact (1983), the 1993 Western Unforgiven, the romance drama The Bridges of Madison County (1992), the Boston neo-noir Mystic River (2003), the war-drama American Sniper (2014) and several others.
