Bradley Cooper to star opposite Clint Eastwood.
Clint Eastwood is set to star in and direct a true crime film about an 80-year-old drug runner.
Variety reports the movie, titled The Mule, is based on a 2014 New York Times Magazine feature. Eastwood will portray Earl Stone who, unbeknownst to him, signs on a drug runner for the Mexican cartel.
He catches the attention of DEA agent Colin Bates, portrayed by Bradley Cooper. This will mark Eastwood’s first acting role since 2012’s Trouble With the Curve.
A release date for The Mule has not been set yet.
