Cry Macho is an upcoming Neo-Western American drama film that is an adaptation of Cry Macho novel written by N. Richard Nash, released in 1975. Cry Macho is directed and produced by Clint Eastwood. The plotline revolves around the life of a former rodeo star, whose character is played by Clint Eastwood himself, who is given the task of reuniting a boy from Mexico with his father, who happens to be in the United States.
The film is distributed by Warner Bros and is all set to release on September 17, 2021. The film was supposed to release long back with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the lead role back in 2003 but was postponed due to Arnold’s term as California’s governor and was later canceled in 2011.
However, in 2020, Clint Eastwood will be directing an adaptation of Cry Macho along with Jessica Meier, Tim Moore, and Ruddy. The film will be released theatrically in the United States and can be streamed digitally on HBO Max for 31 days.
Will it be Eastwood’s Last Film?
Clint Eastwood is 91 years old, and while people have been talking about his retirement, he has slammed them shut with his return as the director, producer, and actor in Cry Macho, the upcoming film which is all set to release in September 2021. He is probably the oldest American star to star and direct himself in a major motion picture.
As per Eastwood, when asked about retirement, he doesn’t necessarily think about it. It seems there is no stopping for the veteran actor as he is pretty dedicated to his work, and if he can work at the age of 91, indeed, one can witness many more from him.
However, several reports suggest that Cry Macho is the ultimate Clint Eastwood film and might retire after this. There is no confirmation yet from the actor’s side on such speculations, and the fans surely don’t want Eastwood to retire.
