Clint Eastwood May Take Over for Steven Spielberg, Direct ‘American Sniper’… Yeah!

Wow… have we gotten lucky?!?  At least we won’t end up with another ‘Hollywood Fiction‘, like the Progressive disaster ‘The Butler’ that is being promoted as a historical film.

Detroit Halftime In America

Per Breitbart.com, It looks like director Steven Spielberg won’t be directing American Sniper, the biopic of late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, after all.

The Plan B, however, is far from a disappointment.

Clint Eastwood is in early discussions to take the helm of the Kyle feature, set to star Bradley Cooper as the late military hero.

If a deal is made, that puts Eastwood in a tight schedule squeeze. The veteran filmmaker is about to begin directing Jersey Boys, the adaptation of the Broadway musical about the rise and fall of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

The film is based on the book by Chris Kyle: American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History (Kindle).

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
