Clint Eastwood, the legendary actor and director, continues to defy his years as he embarks on his latest project, "The Juror 2." Despite entering his tenth decade, Eastwood remains a legend in the film industry, and recent photos from the set have proven that the actor is working just as well as when he was younger.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the impressive cast joining Eastwood for this highly anticipated thriller. Nicholas Hoult and Toni Collette take on the lead roles, alongside Oscar winner J.K. Simmons. The impressive cast is rounded out by Kiefer Sutherland, Gabriela Basso, Zoey Deutch, Leslie Bibb, Chris Messina and many others.

The screenplay, written by Jonathan Abrams, weaves the gripping story of a juror on a murder trial. This seemingly ordinary individual becomes entangled in a web of guilt and fear when he realizes that he might be involved in a crime.

Torn between duty and self-preservation, he must navigate a treacherous path as he tries to influence the jury's decision while battling his own demons. The film seems very interesting and Clint's ability to hold the audience's attention throughout the film will likely prove to be true again.

Own production company Malpaso

Adding another layer of intrigue, Collette takes on the role of a ruthless prosecutor, while Messina portrays a wily defense attorney. Simmons, alongside Hoult, adds depth to the narrative as one of the jurors deliberating the defendant's fate.

Eastwood, who should not rest on his laurels, not only directs, but also produces "The Juror 2" through his own production company Malpaso. He is joined as producers by Tim Moore, Jessica Meyer, Adam Goodman and Matt Skijena.

Eastwood's latest directorial effort, "Cry Macho," released in 2021, is a testament to his enduring passion for storytelling. With an all-star cast and a captivating narrative, "The Juror 2" promises to be another stunning addition to Eastwood's already illustrious filmography. There is great anticipation for this exciting thriller whose story promises success.
