Juror #2 (2024, D: Eastwood) S: Hoult, Collette, Deutch, Sutherland

We have learned that Clint Eastwood is beginning to close in on directing what is being internally billed as the final film of his career, after decades of starring in classic pictures and directing over 35 of his own.

Clint Eastwood’s final film is said to be landing at Warner Bros., the studio where he has been developing projects for over 50 years now. Ever since Gran Torino in 2008, Eastwood has strictly stayed at Warner Bros. and has delivered 10 more films for the studio including Oscar-nominated favorites like Invictus, American Sniper, Sully, and Richard Jewell. His most recent film, Cry Macho, was one of the last few titles to be released day-and-date on HBO Max and in theaters by Warner Bros. in 2021.

Speaking of Cry Macho, the Wall Street Journal reported that when Discovery acquired WarnerMedia, new President and CEO David Zaslav “grilled” in-house executives on the making of that film among others which all flopped at the box office. When execs revealed that they would be willing to take a chance on Eastwood, regardless of box office returns due to his rich history at the studio, Zaslav answered with “We don’t owe anyone any favors.” With our latest report, it seems that Zaslav has changed his tune on Eastwood and is eager to get his final film at Warner Bros.

As for the plot of Clint Eastwood’s final film, sources say he is working on a thriller that is currently titled “Juror #2.” The story is said to follow a juror on a murder trial who realizes that he may have caused the victim’s death and must grapple with the dilemma of whether to manipulate the jury to save himself, or reveal the truth and turn himself in.

While sources say Eastwood is definitely looking to direct, what cannot be certain is Eastwood sticking to the idea of this being his final film. Even though this is how the project is being internally billed, there’s still a small chance that Eastwood decides to tackle another feature after Juror #2. Ultimately, though, with the four-time Oscar winner approaching the age of 93, we’re being told that Eastwood’s current plan is to retire completely after the creation of this film.

No start date has been locked in for Clint Eastwood’s final film. Casting has yet to begin as well, however, one source has hinted that Eastwood is eyeing a young Hollywood star for the lead role. This young star also happens to be starring as the lead in a big film releasing within the next few months per our knowledge. That being said, no further talks with talent have begun.

Juror #2 would be Clint Eastwood’s 40th directed feature film, which makes for an unparalleled cinematic legacy alongside his just as iconic acting career. In addition to his Best Director and Best Picture Academy Award wins for both 1992’s Unforgiven and 2004’s Million Dollar Baby, Eastwood will be remembered for operating unlike any other filmmaker in Hollywood. From his notorious one-take method to actually delivering films under budget to that one time he cast three American heroes in the retelling of their own story in The 15:17 to Paris, the list goes on and on with Eastwood’s noble feats behind the camera.

Under the leadership of Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, Warner Bros. is building an exciting slate of iconic filmmakers to lead the future of the studio. This includes films in active development from directors such as M. Night Shyamalan, Baz Luhrmann, Matt Reeves, Zach Cregger, Tim Burton, and Michael Giacchino as well as completed films from Greta Gerwig (Barbie), Denis Villeneuve (Dune: Part Two), Paul King (Wonka), Bong Joon-ho (Mickey 17), George Miller (Furiosa), Todd Phillips (Joker: Folie ŕ Deux) and Kevin Costner (Horizon). Clint Eastwood’s final film, Juror #2, is sure to be a heavy addition to this list.

Glad he was able to get a deal together with WB. Would have been a real bummer to leave the studio after so many years and so much acclaim.

There's another site that generally peddles clickbait reporting some potential casting, but I like the idea too much to not mention it... so consider a rumor... Two cast members eyed are Nicholas Hoult and Toni Collette. An About A Boy reunion would be cool.

This actually sounds like a good plot. Hopefully it pans out.

Eastwood typically moves very fast from "here's an idea" to "shooting has wrapped." Sometimes to his detriment as a few of his films could have probably used another pass or two on the screenplay, but it's how he works so why stop now? Anyway I am glad to hear he's got at least one more in him.

Wonder if he'll play one of the jurors or some other role?

Legendary actor and filmmaker Clint Eastwood is closing in on his next project, with plans to direct “Juror No. 2.”

The legal drama is set up at Warner Bros., with Nicholas Hoult and Toni Collette circling the lead roles. Eastwood will direct and produce the project alongside Adam Goodman, Tim Moore and Jessica Meier. Jonathan Abrams penned the script.

“Juror No. 2” will take place during a murder trial and follows a juror (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.


Warner Bros. is nearing a green light on the project, with a production start eyed for June, following Eastwood’s 93rd birthday on May 31.

Since Cry Macho was a big let down for me, I hope this one works better. Eastwood is able to get the best out of his actors so, I'm especially be excited for Toni Collette, if she's getting the part.

EXCLUSIVE: Zoey Deutch is set to co-star in the Warner Bros and Clint Eastwood pic Juror #2 starring Nicholas Hoult and Toni Collette. Jonathan Abrams penned the script. Adam Goodman, Matt Skiena, Tim Moore and Jessica Meier will produce.

The pic follows family man Justin Kemp who, while serving as a juror in a high-profile murder trial, finds himself struggling with a serious moral dilemma … one he could use to sway the jury verdict and potentially convict — or free — the wrong killer. Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Jeremy Bell will exec produce.

Seeing how it’s Eastwood, I just assume every time this thread gets bumped it’ll be an update that he’s finished filming, editing, scoring the movie himself, and it’s set to be released next week.

Damn he’s efficient!

I wonder if it will win any awards last year?

Sorry for the bump but thanks for the recommendation. It was pretty good with nice twists.

Agreed. It’s a great, gripping movie. Which is pretty crazy considering it’s single location set.

This post is real apparently. This Clint account is run by the Warner Bros social media press manager. They are targeting an early 2024 release.

I hope this one is better than the very disappointing Cry Macho. I really wanted to love that movie, since it's probably his last time acting, but it just didn't work on any level. The casting was terrible, the script wasn't fleshed out and the direction was not up to Eastwood's standard. Richard Jewell was way better directed.

When Clint is on his a-game he gets the best performances out of his actors.
