The 88-year-old stars in ‘The Mule’, inspired by the real-life story of a man who was 90 when it was discovered he was working for the infamous Sinaloa drug cartel.
The description of the new film reads: Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler.
In typically impressive fashion, Eastwood both starred and directed in the film, joking with USA Today that what attracted him to the script was that he was able to play a “guy who was older than [him].”
The actor’s character, Earl Stone, is, as aforesaid, based on a real person, though most of the action in ‘The Mule’ takes place prior to the bust that saw his true identity come to light.
The film also features Alison Eastwood (Clint’s real-life daughter) in the role of Earl Stone’s daughter!
