Kiefer Sutherland added to the cast of Clint Eastwood's Juror #2
A couple of stories have surfaced around the web over the last week stating that Kiefer Sutherland has now been added to the cast of Clint Eastwood‘s upcoming film Juror #2, slated to be the legendary director’s final motion picture. Clint has of course been a longstanding friend of Kiefer’s father Donald, starring alongside him in both Kelly’s Heroes (1970) and Space Cowboys (2000).

It was recently confirmed that Zoey Deutch had joined the project alongside Toni Collette and Nicholas Hoult. With a script by Jonathan Abrams, who has only worked in the industry previously as an associate producer on the action movie Escape Plan (2013). The forthcoming project will follow a man named Justin Kemp (Hoult) who is faced with a moral dilemma whilst serving as a juror on a high-profile case.
Eastwood’s is rumoured to have also taken a role as the sponsor for Hoult’s character at Alcoholics Anonymous. Collette is lined up to play the prosecutor in the case, and Deutch will play Hoult’s wife. Abrams had held the script for 15 years before Eastwood decided to use it for his final film. No release date is yet known for the project.
Juror #2 will be the 40th film of Eastwood’s directorial career. He has won two ‘Best Director’ Oscars for Million Dollar Baby in 2005 and Unforgiven in 1992.
