“This is very different from anything I’ve ever done before.” Go behind the scenes with Clint Eastwood and the shoot of #TheMule , now playing only in theaters.
From Warner Bros. Illustrations, Imperative Entertainment and BRON Creative comes Clint Eastwood’s newest feature film, the theatre “The Mule.” In addition to directing, the veteran actor will step in front of the lens again, alongside fellow wizards Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Pena, Dianne Wiest and Andy Garcia, as well as Alison Eastwood, Taissa Farmiga, Ignacio Serricchio and Loren Dean, Eugene Cordero.
Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a soul in his 80 s who is separated, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a position that simply compels him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as anti-retroviral drugs runner for a Mexican cartel. He does well–so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is delegate a handler. But he isn’t the only one preserving invoice on Earl; the mysterious brand-new medication mule has also thumped the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money questions become a thought of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s precarious if he’ll have time to freedom those mistakens before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.
