Dirtier Harry?!

If you've been cheating on us and getting your film news elsewhere (don't even think about calling AITH, he hates you too, and we want the mug back, you know, the one with the heart made out of tetris blocks that says "you complete me" on it), then you've probably heard about this rumor about Clint Eastwood's GRAN TORINO actually being a secret new Dirty Harry film. I was kinda skeptical about it and didn't want to run with it until we'd gathered a little more intel. I still don't have anything conclusive, but FilmJerk claims to. You can check out their piece over HERE, which basically says that through logical deduction it would be extremely unlikely that another Dirty Harry film is in the works, at least with that plot that's been going around, and also that the film is instead "a simple, quiet and compelling drama about Walt (Eastwood), a rural bigot who finds his outlook on life changed after a family of Hmong immigrants move in to the home next to his own, striking up a friendship with the family's teenaged son Tao over the older man's now-classic car."

Of course, this is far from conclusive, but it seems more plausible to me by far. You can check out the original rumor over HERE. And also, just to round this out, Movieweb are championing the idea that it might be another Dirty Harry film too. Good lord, who knows what is going on??? That's right, 3 question marks!
Extra Tidbit: Eastwood's favourite actor is James Cagney.

I like Dirty Harry as much as the next guy. Heck, maybe more. But I'm not anxious for Eastwood to pick up that .44 Magnum again. I don't know, but it's probably something to do with this guy's almost eighty, and I'm always apprehensive about franchises picking up where they left off (I've come to terms with my initial Indy 4 doubt).

Having said all that, I am thrilled Eastwood is still acting, and this sounds like one of those roles that could very well help him expand his acting even more.

For a guy who spent a majority of his career in iconic roles, he's got a handful of choice turns (including the one that was the only award he DIDN'T win at the Oscars). Anyway, the man is a living legend, and a bit of a Renaissance man, so I'm up for anything Eastwood!

Huh?

Did the article change between the time you guys read it and when I read it? Because the article I read seems to say that the new movie being another 'Dirty Harry' was UNlikely. Maybe the other articles linked above tell a different story, and I'm making a fool of myself, but up there it sounds like no Dirty Harry.

Oh well, I'd like to see a new Dirty Harry movie, too; but whatever this is, if it's Eastwood, then I'm in.

I have wanted Clint to either do a new Western or a new Harry film so I am extremely happy with this. Cannot wait.
