The production of Clint Eastwood’s “Juror #2,” starring at 93 years old, was stopped as a result of the SAG-AFTRA strike, which was a great bummer.

According to what I’ve learned since then, there were approximately 32 days of filming left when the set had to shut down on July 14 owing to the strike; the production was scheduled to end on August 16.

Given how quickly past post-production processes have been for Eastwood’s films, it wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch to believe that this one could have come out this year. Sadly, that isn’t going to happen now.

In a previous THR article from a few months ago, Eastwood was quoted as saying that he “wanted to find one last project in order to be able to ride off into the sunset with his head held high.” He discovered the “Juror #2” script and declared it to be “the one”. “Clint’s final film” will likely be the narrative employed by Warner Bros. during the upcoming awards season.

Among the cast of “Juror #2” are Toni Collette, Nicholas Hoult, Kiefer Sutherland, and Zoey Deutch. “Set during a murder trial, one of the jurors slowly realizes he killed the victim in a careless-driving accident and attempts to save the defendant without implicating himself,” according to the description of the movie.

This is set to be Eastwood’s 40th film as a director and it’s been a long and illustrious career for this movie legend. Some of his classics include “Unforgiven,” “Mystic River,” “Million Dollar Baby,” “Gran Torino,” “High Plains Drifter,” “The Outlaw Josey Wales,” “A Perfect World,” and “Pale Rider.”

He used to direct a film per year, but his last one was 2021’s mediocre “Cry Macho”. This has led to speculation about his health. Hey, he’s healthy enough to make abother movie …

Clint just needs to sit in the directors chair and point. That’s all. John Huston did it with an oxygen tank on his final film, 1987’s “The Dead.” So did Robert Altman with 2006’s “Prairie Home Companion.”

If you don’t think Eastwood still has one last great movie left in him then you probably weren’t a fan of 2018’s “The Mule” and 2019’s “Richard Jewell” — both very strong movies.
