Clint Eastwood to Replace Steven Spielberg on ‘American Sniper’

eastwoodIt appears that one Oscar-winning director will be replacing another to film American Sniper, starring Bradley Cooper. Clint Eastwood has apparently stepped in to direct the film penned by Jason Hall, based on the book “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in US Military History” by Chris Kyle, Scott McEwan and Jim DeFelice. Eastwood’s next film, Jersey Boys, is currently in pre-production, and he is scheduled to begin filming American Sniper once that film is completed.

Does this project interest you more or less now that Eastwood is taking over?
