Clint Eastwood surprised more than just the local film industry when he unexpectedly decided to shoot scenes for his new film, The Mule, in Colorado.

He decided to film here despite the fact that Colorado slashed the amount of money available for film incentives last year.

Tim supports that, saying:
Incentives to film here suck, relatively speaking.
Justin responds: 
Maybe he got Colorado confused with California...
Tom asks:
Was he dragging an empty chair with him?
Jackie's review:
Oh look. Eastwood playing an old war vet. *Yawn* Same movie, same crotchety old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn.

But Bret says:
Would have loved to have seen him.

I had the opportunity to have dinner with Clint years ago and honestly he’s a a very nice and down to earth guy.

It’s great to know he still enjoys making movies at his age because it can’t be easy. He’s such an amazing director and actor so I definitely look forward to seeing what he does next.
