Clint Eastwood To Direct, Produce & Star in 'Cry Macho' Based On 1978 Book

Clint Eastwood has lined up his next project, Deadline reports.

The 90-year-old Oscar winning director will be back behind the camera and in front of it for Cry Macho, an adaption of N. Richard Nash‘s 1978 novel.

The story centers on a onetime rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1978, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home and away from his alcoholic mom.

Crossing rural Mexico on their back way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman may find his own sense of redemption through teaching the boy what it means to be a good man.

The screenplay, which was originally penned by Nash in the 1980s for a movie adaption, will have a rewrite from Nick Schenk.

Earlier in the year, Clint‘s son Scott opened up about his dad’s birthday plans during quarantine. See what he said here…
