Clint Eastwood

At the present time , Clint Eastwood has to confront the top famous artists ?

Clint Eastwood is one of Hollywood’s most notorious figures – known for his dashing good looks, those wildly intense stares, and exuding a confidence that some people came to fear – so it’s no shocker that he has made some enemies along the way, too.

Top Celebs Who ABSOLUTELY HATE Clint Eastwood

“Right Turn, Clyde.” Now that that’s settled, let’s get down to the good, the bad, and the ugly – about why some of Hollywood’s other greatest actors, like John Wayne and company, actually hate Clint Eastwood.

In order to understand why people hate Clint Eastwood we first need to talk about who he is and why he is so important. “Go ahead, make my day.” Clint Eastwood began acting in the early 1950s and is still very much at it today. He has won five Academy Awards and numerous other honors.

Simply put, Clint Eastwood is and has been for decades, a major player in Hollywood… Eastwood, known for his rugged masculine roles, has often been cast as the loner. Countless women have swooned at his cowboyish charm, and he’s had many admirers, but that didn’t stop people from hating him either. Some were jealous of his success, while others didn’t like his point of view and vocality on certain issues. But we’re not the judge here, simply presenting the case.

Apparently, Eastwood has made some famous Hollywood actors, rather unhappy with him, and they have since promised that they would never work with him again. Mr. Leonardo Dicaprio and Dicaprio worked with Clint Eastwood on the movie J. Edgar in 2011, where Leo was championing the project as J. Edgar Hoover, the picture directed by Clint. Issues were throughout but came to a boil after Leo requested a retake of a scene. Clint instead, announced the day as a wrap and calmly walked away from set.

Another actor in Hoover, Armie Hammer, claims that Clint’s style of shooting one take and moving on was so unusual, that Hammer actually thought a take was just the rehearsal, and when Eastwood decided to print it and move on. Hammer was flustered, explaining that he had his script in his hand the entire time. Clint said, “I’ll simply edit the script out.” Reportedly both Leo and Clint were cordial for the rest of the picture, but Dicaprio was already slated to appear in a second Eastwood film – but he stepped down, feeling like his voice fell on deaf ears.

The one, and only Tom Hanks. Now, Tom Hanks worked with Clint Eastwood more recently, in the 2016 film pilot true story, Sully, the first collaboration between Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks. Tom has stated that Eastwood acted more like a cowboy than a director, rounding up his horses on set and being rather harsh on occasion. Tom Hanks particularly disliked being on the receiving end of Clint Eastwood’s disapproving glare on set.

And even One of Clint Eastwood’s own heroes didn’t really care for the gunslinger, and from one legendary gunslinger to another, this one hurts. That’s because I’m referring to The Duke himself, Mr. John Wayne. Who didn’t agree with many of Eastwood’s creative liberties. The beef began when industry writers began comparing the up and coming Clint Eastwood to the famed John Wayne.

Spike Lee : Director Spike Lee and Clint Eastwood’s feud can be traced back to hiring choices made by Eastwood for his two famous World War II films, both released in 2006: Letters from Iwo Jima in and Flags of Our Fathers. Lee claims that Eastwood did not accurately portray the diversity of forces who heroically fought in the battles.

Michael Moore : Documentary Director Michael Moore posted some critical comments about snipers on Facebook around the same time that Clint Eastwood’s film American Sniper premiered in 2014. Moore lost a family member to a sniper in World War II, Michael thought the movie glorified snipers in a way that he didn’t think was appropriate.

Clint Eastwood May Replace Steven Spielberg as ‘American Sniper’ Director

American Sniper – based on the late Chris Kyle’s memoir “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History” – has attracted some big Hollywood talent, ever since Bradley Cooper’s 22nd & Indiana production company picked up the rights in 2012 (with Cooper attaching himself as the star and producer). Case in point, Cooper’s Silver Linings Playbook writer/director David O. Russell was reported as being the first serious contender in consideration for the helming job on Sniper.

Russell has decided to look elsewhere, where it concerns the possible followup to his next project: the true-story historical dramedy American Hustle (also starring Cooper). Steven Spielberg appeared to be all-ready to commit as director on American Sniper back in May of 2013, but he then dropped out around three months later.

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. wants American Sniper to begin filming by the first quarter of 2014. That could mean the studio intends to release the movie during the subsequent awards season; or, at least, have the Sniper adaptation ready in time to make an Oscar-qualifying limited theatrical run in December next year.

However, in order for that to be feasible, WB is going to need a director known for working fast, efficiently and effectively to captain the American Sniper ship – which may be part of the reason why the studio has begun “tentative negotiations” with Clint Eastwood, so as to have the Oscar-winning legend take the helm. If a deal is struck, then Eastwood will begin filming his Jersey Boys musical adaptation at the conclusion of this month (August 2013, at the time of writing this), before he wraps up production a couple months later and then jumps head-first into principal photography on Sniper.

Kyle’s American Sniper book – detailing how the former Navy SEAL went “from Texas rodeo cowboy to expert marksman and feared assassin” – has been adapted into movie script form by Jason Dean Hall. The latter’s artistic credibility took a hit this past week, due to the poor critical reception for Paranoia (which Hall co-wrote). I’m taking the time to note this because Eastwood has a tendency to direct scripts with potential – something that Hall’s American Sniper script draft clearly has (given the talent it has managed to attract).

Problem is, Clint the director is able to work faster because he skips on polishing or fine-tuning the scripts he works from, as has become increasingly noticeable in his more recent films (see: Invictus, J. Edgar) – meaning, he may not be the right guy to give Hall’s American Sniper script draft any necessary tweaks it needs to realize its full promise. Moreover, Eastwood’s no-budge directorial temperament often gives rise to a slow-paced and soulfully-morose final product – but is that the right approach to Kyle’s story, passing over how respectful Eastwood would be towards his subject?

How about it, then: Clint Eastwood to direct American Sniper, yay or nay?

Clint Eastwood to Direct ‘Jersey Boys’ Film?

These days, actor/director Clint Eastwood is best known as the filmmaker behind hard-hitting dramas like Million Dollar Baby and Mystic River. However, the former Dirty Harry has been looking to try his hand at a very different genre for quite a while – the musical.

For years, Eastwood has been developing a remake of A Star Is Born, which was most recently brought to the big screen in 1976 with Barbara Streisand in the lead. Eastwood’s version – which would be the third remake of the original 1937 production – was set to star Beyoncé Knowles. However, Knowles has since dropped out of the project, leaving it in a state of limbo for now.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eastwood will instead shift his focus over to another musical project with the film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway production Jersey Boys. The plot focuses on the rise and fall of musical group Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and uses the group’s music to tell its story. Jon Favreau had previously been attached to direct the film.

If Eastwood takes on Jersey Boys, the film would likely be his next directorial project, followed (presumably) by A Star Is Born. The latter film is currently courting Grammy-winning jazz singer and bassist Esperanza Spalding to star, though the project has also faced difficulty in casting its male lead. Sean Penn is among the most recent crop of actors being discussed for the role.

Eastwood’s decision to move on from A Star Is Born is a wise one, considering that project looks like it will take a while to gain any traction. Besides, a filmmaker as accomplished as Eastwood can lend just the right amount of gravitas to something like Jersey Boys. After last summer’s Rock of Ages failed to score at the box office, audiences may need convincing to check out another “jukebox musical.”

Do you think Eastwood is a good fit for Jersey Boys? Let us know in the comments section below.

Stay tuned to Screen Rant for the latest news on the Jersey Boys movie as this story develops.

‘Trouble with the Curve’ Images: Clint Eastwood Returns to Acting

Clint Eastwood hasn’t appeared onscreen in four years, and the last time he acted under the direction of someone other than… well, himself was in 1993. The 82-year old Hollywood legend returns to the big screen in Trouble with the Curve from his protégé Robert Lorenz, who’s worked on-and-off as an assistant director and/or producer on Eastwood’s films (beginning with Bridges of Madison County).

Eastwood co-headlines Trouble with the Curve alongside three-peat Oscar-nominee Amy Adams. The supporting cast isn’t shabby either, including John Goodman, Justin Timberlake, Robert Patrick, Matthew Lillard (The Descendants), and semi-newcomer Joe Massingill.

Trouble with the Curve is a father-daughter relationship drama explored through the lens of an off-the-field sports drama. Newcomer Randy Brown’s script revolves around an Atlanta Braves scout (Eastwood) who on the verge of being put out to pasture, due to his diminishing eyesight and old-fashioned approach to recruiting players (obviously, he doesn’t subscribe to the Moneyball school of thought).

Eastwood’s character convinces his estranged daughter (Adams) to accompany and assist him on what could be his last assignment, to determine whether or not a promising power hitter (Massingill) has potential to make it in the big leagues. Timberlake plays a player-turned-scout who’s on good terms with Eastwood, but risks trouble when he starts getting too friendly with Adams.

Lorenz has the opportunity to demonstrate the directorial tricks he’s picked up on working with Eastwood over the years, while establishing himself as a reputable storyteller on Trouble with the Curve (his feature-length directorial debut). The two-time Oscar nominee certainly works as efficiently as his mentor, given the six-month turnaround between the film’s production start date and its release this fall.

Moreover, Trouble with the Curve could satisfy as a capstone to Eastwood’s acting legacy, much like Unforgiven did for his days working in the western genre; not to mention, Gran Torino served as a swansong to his career playing characters who’re rough around the edges (ex. Harry Callahan). If Eastwood turns in a performance deemed awards-worthy by his peers, well, that’s icing on the cake.
