More Like About a Man Now

It's not often you're gonna get me posting about Clint Eastwood movies -- I lost every ounce of interest I ever had in that man when he ranted at that empty chair at the Republican National Convention in 2012 -- but this news allows me to post the above photo and that I cannot deny myself. The 91-year-old Eastwood is setting up his next (and final, he says) movie, a legal thriller called Juror No. 2, and it will apparently reunite About a Boy stars Toni Collette and Nicholas Hoult  for the first time in 21 years -- can you believe that? That seems criminal. They should've worked together again. That said I try to look at child-actor-photos of Nicky as infrequently as possible, given my less-than-pure feelings about him these days, ahem. But we'll allow this flashback because it's too sweet. I just hope this movie doesn't involve any sexual tension between their characters -- that would be too weird. Anyway here's the plot:

"Juror No. 2 will take place during a murder trial and follows a juror, to be played by Hoult, who realizes that he may have caused the victim’s death. He must decide whether to manipulate the jury to save himself, or reveal the truth and turn himself in. Collette would play the prosecutor."

Good news but if you are writing about a legend at least get the man's age correct,he's 93 in 6 weeks.
