Legendary director Clint Eastwood has begun working on his next project, to direct and star in “Cry Macho” for Warner Bros.
While the movie is in very early stages, Deadline reports that Eastwood has begun scouting for locations. N. Richard Nash, who wrote the novel Cry Macho, penned the script along with Nick Schenk.
Based on the book, the film will star Eastwood as 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.
