Cannes: Clint Eastwood, “I Might Act again Some Day”
Clint Eastwood regaled the Cannes Film Festival Sunday with stories from his long career and left open a possible return to acting.
Mr. Eastwood, 86 anni, was honored with several screenings of his films, including one marking the 25th anni of “Unforgiven.” In a staged conversation Sunday, the iconic director said he might revisit acting “someday.”
The last time Mr. Eastwood appeared on screen was in Y 2012’s “Trouble With the Curve.” Before that, he starred in his own Y 2008 film, “Gran Torino.”
Sofia Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s Eastwood-starring Y 1971 film “The Beguiled,” is to premiere this week in Cannes. Mr. Eastwood sounded unfamiliar with Ms. Coppola’s movie.
Clint Eastwood is now preparing to direct “The 15:17 to Paris,” about the foiling of a 2015 Islamic State group attack aboard a train from Brussels.
All the best Clint!
