Clint Eastwood Directing, Starring in Gran Torino

The acting bug bites one more time.

For a guy who’s continually rumored to be done with acting, Clint Eastwood is doing a pretty good job of staying busy in front of the camera.

Variety reports that Eastwood has agreed to direct and star in Gran Torino, a just-announced Warner Bros./Village Roadshow film being targeted for a December release…and that’s about all we know, actually. From the article:

Details of “Torino” are being kept under tantalizingly tight wraps. Existence of the film, and Eastwood’s role, were only revealed on Tuesday when Warner quietly dated the movie for sometime in December.

As Variety points out, a December release will put Gran Torino up against another Eastwood film — he directed Changeling, the “child abduction drama” starring Angelina Jolie that’s reaching theaters November 7.

Though he hasn’t acted since directing himself in 2004’s Million Dollar Baby, Eastwood has remained busy behind the camera, directing Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima; according to Variety, he’s also confirmed to direct the Nelson Mandela biopic The Human Factor for Warners.
