Eastwood says he’d love to be directing at age 105
Clint Eastwood may be 82 years old, but he dreams of making films for two more decades.
In a wide-ranging interview Saturday about film directing at the Tribeca Film Festival, Eastwood said he admires the 104-year-old Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira.
Eastwood said, “It would be great to be 105 and still making films.” He laughed and called such a hope “the ultimate optimism.”
The “Million Dollar Baby” and “Unforgiven” director joined fellow filmmaker Darren Aronofsky for a staged conversation at the New York film festival after a screening of Richard Schickel’s documentary “Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story.”
Zach Braff raises $2 million on Kickstarter in 3 days
Zach Braff has met his goal on Kickstarter, raising $2 million in three days to fund his follow-up to “Garden State.”
The actor-director’s crowd-funding campaign follows Rob Thomas’ wildly successful use of Kickstarter to finance a movie of the defunct TV series “Veronica Mars.” Thomas pulled in $2 million in less than a day, eventually gathering more than $5.7 million in 30 days.
After passing his goal Saturday, the “Scrubs” star said on Twitter: “I will not let you down. Let’s go make a killer movie.”
