Spielberg, Eastwood re-team?

Although it's still in preliminary stages, Steven Spielberg, proud owner of a little script called HEREAFTER, is reported to be wooing Old Man Oscar himself, Clint Eastwood, to direct the project.

Although plot details are being kept secret, the script was held onto by Spielberg when he split with Paramount earlier this year, meaning that it's most likely quality stuff. Written by the same dude who wrote FROST/NIXON, it is described as being in the same vein as THE SIXTH SENSE. If Eastwood were to direct, it would mark his first forway into the supernatural. Unless you count that whole SPACE COWBOYS thing. That was pretty out there.
Extra Tidbit: The two titans collaborated twice before on Eastwood's WWII companion pieces, FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS and LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, which Spielberg produced.

Oscars, really? How long did it take til Scorsese won? So, by your mode of thinking, Eastwood (no doubt, a great director in his own right) trumps Scorsese?

No wrong? Really? Eastwood has directed way more duds than Spielberg, and his best films don't even rival the best things that Spielberg has unleashed.

Eastwood is a great and iconic actor, yes... but as a director he's a mixed-bag.

Clint can do no wrong in my book. but SS can so uh, it doesn't always mean amazing. Hopefully this script is as good as it sounds and Eastwood delivers big time. He's the best director around and he can pretty much take on anything.
