Cry Macho: Clint Eastwood's Latest Gets A Release Date From Warner Bros.

 


At 90 years old, Clint Eastwood shows no signs of slowing down. The actor and director is currently working on his next project, Cry Macho. The film which Eastwood has wanted to make for 40 years is finally in post production and has received a (hopefully) post-pandemic release date from WB. The studio has given the star's next film an October 22nd, 2021 release date, which will hopefully stick. Eastwood stars and directs this latest feature from Warner. 

The movie is based on the novel of the same name from N. Richard Nash. The story tells of a retired rodeo cowboy and horse breeder who makes a journey across Mexico to bring his ex-boss's son home and away from his alcoholic mother. This would be just another in a long line of redemption tales from Eastwood over the course of his career. 

The screenplay is by Nash and Nick Shenk who also worked with Eastwood on Gran Torino and The Mule.
