Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper have teamed up once more. After working together in American Sniper, which Eastwood directed, the Hollywood legend is again in entrance of the digital camera (and behind) in The Mule as a drug runner for a Mexican cartel, whereas Cooper performs one of many DEA brokers who tracks him down.
Within the movie, Eastwood performs Earl Stone, based mostly on the real-life story of Leo Sharp, an 87-year-old man who was caught by authorities after spending a decade transporting medication for the Sinaloa Drug Cartel. As proven within the trailer, Sharp handled quite a few monetary points late in his life, and after being approached with a possibility to earn money, he agreed to move lots of of kilos of medication for the cartel.
The trailer reveals off the extreme scenario Eastwood’s character finds himself in, caught between harmful cartel troopers, DEA brokers, and all the things else closing in on him. Right here’s a take a look at the extreme trailer:
Eastwood seems on-screen in an appearing function for the primary time for the reason that 2012 movie Bother with the Curve, and that is the primary time since Gran Torino in 2008 that he’ll be directing and starring in the identical movie. Cooper performs Colin Bates, a DEA agent based mostly on the real-life agent Jeff Moore, who was the one who arrested Sharp. The movie relies on a New York Times article detailing Sharp’s exploits and the coordinated operation that caught him.
The Mule is scheduled for launch on December 14, 2018.
