Cry Macho Trailer out now
Clint Eastwood's latest film Cry Macho is the one where he treads where multiple men have tried but failed before. The neo-Western movie is based on a book by Richard Nash from 1975 and since then a handful of Hollywood leading men have tried their hand at doing the role of a washed-up horse breeder on the road to redemption, from Roy Scheider and Burn Lancaster, to Pierce Brosnan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, at the age of 91, director and actor Clint Eastwood has successfully managed to do the movie, beating all the odds. The film is expected to be released on September 17, 2021, in theatres and also will be streamed on HBO Max simultaneously from Warner Bros on the same day.
In the drama written for the screen by author Nash who passed away in 2000 with contributions from co-writer Nick Schenk (Eastwood films Gran Turino and The Mule), Eastwood plays the role of a one-time rodeo star who is a borderline alcoholic after losing his wife and kid).
In the late 1970s, he is forced to bring his former boss’ son which requires him to go on a treacherous journey from Mexico back to Texas.
Eastwood told Entertainment Weekly that the movie is about a man who has been through hardships in his life and then all of a sudden another challenge is brought upon him. He’s usually no one to do it, but being a man of his own words, he undertakes the job and his life starts all over again.
This is Eastwood’s first flick as a director ever since 2019’s Richard Jewell, which he just stuck to direction only and not acting. Photography of Cry Macho commenced in November 2020 in Albuquerque, New Mexico before heading off to Belen, New Mexico. The shooting wrapped up on December 15, with Eastwood hiring a massive cast and crew despite the pandemic restrictions.
