Paul Newman to star in The Eiger Sanction
Well here’s an interesting little snippet spotted by our good friend Richard DuVal. Richard spotted this recently in an old trade paper and indicated that Paul Newman was at some point very interested in playing the role of Dr. Jonathan Hemlock in The Eiger Sanction. I’m not sure why Newman didn’t follow this through or why he changed his plans? However, I’m certainly glad that Clint picked it up. I still think it remains a great movie from his 70’s body of work.
