From the LACMA
WEEKEND SERIES The Essential Clint Eastwood February 12 - February 26
"I suppose Clint Eastwood is the most underrated director in the world today... an actor like Eastwood is such a pure type of mythic hero-star in the Wayne tradition that no one is going to take him seriously as a director. But someone ought to say it. And when I saw The Outlaw Josey Wales for the fourth time, I realized that it belongs with the great Westerns... And I take my hat off to him."—Orson Welles.
To mark the release of a DVD boxed set of thirty-five Warner Bros. films directed by or starring Clint Eastwood, LACMA presents a weekend series comprised of nine films, plus four matinees. Starting with genre films-the cop thrillers (Dirty Harry) and westerns (The Outlaw Josey Wales) that brought him early acclaim-the series culminates with his mature dramas Honkytonk Man, Unforgiven, Bird, and White Hunter, Black Heart, all of which represent a remarkable range of subject matter. A masterful storyteller and an effortless practitioner of classical mise-en-scene, Eastwood has earned a place in film history among such classically American directors as John Ford, Howard Hawks, King Vidor, and John Huston.

Our thanks to Clint Eastwood, Richard Schickel, and Warner Home Entertainment for their generous assistance in making this series possible.

Hola amigo acabo de ver y leer tu respuesta gracias por tu interes.
Te pregunto un proyecto de clint eastwood que tenia pensado dirigir sobre la vida del astronauta NEIL ARMSTRONG, me gustaria que clint llevase a cabo este proyecto tan hermoso sobre un verdadero icono americano.
tambièn me gustaria que clint estribiese un guiòn sobre un western sobre indios y soldados que vienen a pedir ayuda del otro lado seria un western que rompiera vareras ., yo tengo algunas ideas si clint quisiera yo le ayudaria , nadie mejor que el se merece este guion .

saludos nuevamente amigo y suerte en todo

Hello again Domingo,
The Neil Armstrong biography project was brought by Clint, to be made under his Malpaso banner for Warner Brothers back in 2003. It stayed with WB for 5 years, but of course, nothing came of the project. In 2008 the rights were sold to Universal pictures, but I'm not sure if anything has been put into production as yet.
Best
TCEA
