    Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry Again?
    Monday, August 26, 2002 11:51 CDT

    Sky News is reporting that Clint Eastwood wants to bring the tough talking, gun-slinging Dirty Harry back to the big screen.

    The 72-year-old actor and director has suffered a number of box office flops in recent years and believes his most famous character would give him the hit he has been waiting for.

    "If a good script came along he would play Dirty Harry again," his agent, Leonard Hirsham told the Daily Star.

    Eastwood, who stared in five Dirty Harry films after the 1971 original, hasn't had a box office smash since Space Cowboys two years ago.

    Gotta love those classic 'Dirty Harry' films. If Clint could play the part as well as he did in the '70s, I say why not!

    I say only do it with a top-notch script and I reliable director. Anything less, forget about it. At this point in his life, Clint shouldn't have to worry about trying to make "hits". He should stick to staring in and/or directing the best films possible.

    We already suffered through an elderly Sean Connery as James Bond. I think Clint should take a look at those films and think REAL HARD about doing another DH flick.

    Man - I downloaded Bloodwork. It sucks. Clint should stick to directing. I'm sure he's got a cool idea or two to get out...

    Actually I thought the movie was pretty good, the way he impaled that dude with the whale gun at the end. But it would have to be a damn good script for anything to work at his age now.

    Clint to return as Dirty Harry Callahan?

    Yes.

    The best part of Bloodwork was seeing Clint shoot up a quiet suburban neighbourhood with a double barrel shot gun.

    As much as I loved Clint's BW direction, I would just love to see Eastwood hand the reigns over to someone like Tarantino. An infusion of young kick-ass attitude. Yes, this is something that must happen. In fact, forget about Dirty Harry. What about Clint playing an aging drug dealer, a character way off type. Or an ensemble 'mission' type thing, like Dirty Dozen with Clint as the reluctant leader of a bunch of young guys like Diesel and Whalberg. Has he done anything with Clooney?

    I thought he directed Bloodwork (in addition to starring in it)...

    That'd be killer! I love the DH movies, but I also think that they should make a movie called "Dirty Harry Potter!"

    God, as much as I love Eastwood as an actor, director, pianist ( ), etc., the only thing I could picture about a 72-yr. old Callahan is "Harry's Dirty Underpants." [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    I agree that at his age, Clint shouldn't give a rat's ass about "hits", and frankly, I haven't thought his last few cinematic efforts were so bad.
