Clint Eastwood’S ‘Juror #2’ To Wrap Production This Weekend

Clint Eastwood is one of the most well-known directors in American cinema, so his artistic decisions are always highly significant. Although he has garnered a great deal of praise for his work as both a director and an actor, some of his films have also drawn criticism from critics and prominent members of the industry.

The strike has officially ended, which means that in the upcoming days and weeks, Hollywood will be extremely active, reenergized, and producing enormous productions. There will be a boom soon.

Now that the strike has over, here is Clint Eastwood, grinning and sporting a freshly trimmed beard, on the set of “Juror #2.” Production on the movie is expected to conclude either on Sunday or Monday.

One of the real bummers of the SAG-AFTRA strike was the production halt of 93-year-old Eastwood’s, supposedly, “final film,” which has been shooting in Georgia these last two weeks.

Eastwood works very quickly, so it shouldn’t come as much of a stretch to believe that he’ll be done post-production on this one in a few months. It’s coming out in 2024 and I’m hoping, praying, for a Cannes premiere. The last Eastwood to premiere on the Croisette was 2008’s “Changeling” and scheduling is aligning quite well for “Juror #2” to be there.

A few months back, THR had reported that Eastwood “wanted to find one last project in order to be able to ride off into the sunset with his head held high.” He found the script for “Juror No. 2” and said this is “the one”. This will probably be the narrative used by Warner Bros. during next year’s, awards season: “Clint’s final film”.

Kiefer Sutherland, Zoey Deutch, Nicholas Hoult, and Toni Collette feature in “Juror No. 2.” The movie is centered around a murder trial in which a jury member gradually comes to terms with the fact that he killed the victim in an accident caused by careless driving and attempts to save the defendant without revealing his identity.

Despite the fact that Eastwood’s most recent movie, “Cry Macho,” was among his worst ever, he has been a somewhat steady director in the last few years, having created two excellent movies in 2018 and 2019: “The Mule” and “Richard Jewell.”

“Juror #2” is set to be Eastwood’s 40th film.
