Dirty Harry is back and he's looking for a 1972 Ford GRAN TORINO!!!

Hey folks, Harry here... First we saw Rocky return, then it was Rambo... now - it looks like the gods are giving us one last Harry Callahan story! Today, it cracked in the trades that there was a new Clint Eastwood movie called GRAN TORINO - nobody seems to know what it is, but we know that Eastwood is going to star. Online - folks like Jeremy Smith were not so quietly hoping it meant... Dirty Harry. Well... here's a note I just received:

Harry. Nobody seems to know – not even the trades – what Clint Eastwood’s new movie, Gran Torino, is…. So I’ll tell you. I recently advertised my 1974 ford grand torino classic original for sale in the local here, and within 24 hours had someone from Village Roadshow Pictures interested in having a look at it. He came. He wasn’t interested for numerous reasons (probably the modifications). He told me they were looking for the right car for a new Clint Eastwood movie. He said it was a thriller about a killer that drives a certain torino. His 1972 Ford Gran Torino is the only thing the police have on him. A retired police lieutenant, one Harry Callahan, makes it his mission to track down the culprit when two young police officers, one Callahan’s grandson, are shot and killed by the guy. So there you have it. Hope that helps. On with the show, Kurt, North Hollywood.

Well - if this is true - FUCKING A!!! Here's what a Gran Torino circa 1972 looks like! Can't wait to see this!

    So, the movie studio wasn't interested in your car...

    by Bobo_Vision

    ...but they decided to spoil the plot to their upcoming movie to you. Kind of like the evil villain who explains his evil plans to the hero before killing him, giving him enough time to spoil his plans...or his movie, as it were.

    look eastwood is already giving us a serious film this year, and his films have been dead serious, great, but dead serious for awhile now, this could be great, i mean why shouldnt he take a break and make one last great Harry movie?

    DevilCat has a good point about Harry's lack of grandson potential. I'm an idealist though, I like to believe in a world where Eastwood wants to direct a movie about retired Harry Callahan.

    Didn't Eastwood say a few years ago

    by GodMars

    He wanted to do a new Dirty Harry movie, and the first shot in the movie would be of this guy fly fishing in a stream, and then you realize its Harry!

    Wow. Wonder if he'll go the Unforgiven route?

  • March 19, 2008, 9:45 p.m. CST

    Laserbrain

    by Vern

    I would go for either one. I mean if he's directing it (and he is directing GRAN TORINO, whatever it is) I can't imagine it won't at least be a little more thoughtful than the previous ones. I would want it to be intended as a final chapter.<p> But it wouldn't necessarily have to be as serious as UNFORGIVEN. Maybe a more high quality BLOODWORK. And to be fair, the very first DIRTY HARRY sequel, MAGNUM FORCE, already went the "questioning the values of the first film" route by having Harry have to stop a circle of vigilante cops. So that's not really required.<p> But my guess would be that if he really is doing a Dirty Harry then it will be somewhere in that "to DIRTY HARRY movies as UNFORGIVEN is to Clint Eastwood westerns" area. Because that seems more like what he's interested in these days.

    A 78/79 year old Dirty Harry????Tough Guys Part 2??

    by ChiTownsBest

    I'm a huge fan of the Dirty Harry movies and once upon a time I even paid to see the Dead Pool as a teenager. I wouldn't put it past Eastwood to make a great Dirty Harry movie even at the age of 78. Having said all that I'm not completely sure that I want to see a very old Dirty Harry trying to shoot someone with a .44 magnum while barley even being able to walk at a normal pace. Dirty Harry was a complete badass and I want to keep it that way. I don't really want to see the "Unforgiven" version of Dirty Harry where he sorry for all his sins. Dirty Harry was never sorry for anything and that's the only Harry Callahan I'll accept. I really hope this rumor isn't true and Gran Turino is something else besides a Dirty Harry movie. With Harrison Ford already looking way to old to be doing the jumps and fighting he's doing in the Crystal Skull previews I hope that Clint doesn't do the same. The only movie with men that old acting tough was the Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster movie Tough Guys and they were playing it for laughs. Maybe Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood can do a remake of that movie instead.

  • March 19, 2008, 10:40 p.m. CST

    Well, if true, it's better than a remake, anyway.

    by Stalin vs Predator

    Although to guarantee that it's watchable, Eastwood needs to be behind the camera, too - or behind the typewriter.

    Sledge Hammer Was Before The Naked Gun

    by DangerMan

    The Naked Gun came after Sledge Hammer! Although the short-lived Police Squad crashed and burned a couple of years before Sledge debuted, it wasn't a Dirty Harry send-up and they copied that aspect. Sledge was related to Maxwell Smart and Inspector Clouseau, where Drebin was just Leslie Nielsen doing his same old schtick. If Eastwood is going to do an old Dirty Harry, then Sledge should finally return. Those DVDs aren't enough anymore!

  • March 19, 2008, 10:48 p.m. CST

    No, Sledge Hammer was before Naked Gun

    by skywalkerfamily

    Sledge was out in the 80's.

  • March 19, 2008, 10:48 p.m. CST

    Was that 5 shots? Or 6?

    by Cinemajerk

    No seriously. I can't remember. I have alzheimers. Senile Harry.

  • March 19, 2008, 10:51 p.m. CST

    Didn't I Just Say That?

    by DangerMan

    Sledge Hammer debuted in '86 and The Naked Gun came out in '89, so it was following its lead. Those Naked Gun movies don't hold up well, especially when you see how many jokes came direct from Get Smart.

    When they do the reboot, it must be HUGH JACKMAN

    by kevred

    Not that I want a reboot. I'd always prefer Clint, just as I'd prefer Mel in any Mad Max. But if it had to happen--just think of Hugh, with a few more lines on his face, in one of those Callahan suits. He's got the right face, the right hair, the right stature, and could act the heck out of that role.<p>Mark my words.

  • March 19, 2008, 10:55 p.m. CST

    Dear God in heaven...

    by cornponious

    Naked Gun was based on the TV show Police Squad! which debuted in1982. FAR before Sledge Hammer. <p> And we STILL don't need a new Dirty Harry movie.

    One Last Time...

    by DangerMan

    Sledge Hammer was written as a movie long before Police Squad bombed on the small screen. Police Squad had just six episodes and Sledge Hammer ran two years and was a hit on DVD and I think a new Dirty Harry movie will be something I'll definitely check out. Rocky, Rambo, McClane, Indy. Who else is left?

    Eastwood and Nimoy

    by Acquanetta

    I could actually see Eastwood doing this, since it wouldn't be that far removed from, say, Blood Work. And while he's pushing 80, he's only about a year older than Leonard Nimoy, who is currently reprising Spock. I imagine Dirty Harry wouldn't really have to do anything more physically demanding than Spock at this point. He's also probably in better shape than John Wayne was during his final movies (even though Wayne was still a few years younger). This rumor doesn't sound too legit, but the whole mystery surrounding this film does make you wonder what's up.

    .44 Magnums....

    by Stevie Grant

    are terrible. So are .357's, 44 magnums, and .454 Casulls. Basically, unless you are expecting a showdown with a bear or Robocop... anyone with any experience with guns (that includes cops who don't carry the modern, standard issue 9mm) who wants stopping power would go with a 45 or 40. Rounds make the difference nowadays. I grew up in rural area, have a lot of experience with guns... most movies besides Heat pisses me off.

    Xiphos,

    by Stevie Grant

    I gotta disagree with you. I'll admit, I am extremely partial to 1911's, but those type of guns that would knock a sasquatch flat on its ass have entirely too much muzzle drift. You can control a 45 while squeezing off multiple rounds a second with practice. I've never seen anyone match the accuracy of a 45 with any 357 plus caliber when it comes to a friendly competition. And, yeah, shooting hydroshocks (or the [nameless] totally awesome rounds that have 2+ inch groupings at 25 yards) will stop any human dead. I'm not a big fan of the 40 cal., but if you load it with hydros, you can not only get better precision when poppin' off multiple rounds in a hurry, you can get the reassurance that what you hit ain't getting back up.

    Torino Could Just Be A Potential Vehicle For Dirty Harry

    by Acquanetta

    Well, we definitely know that Eastwood is going to direct and star in a movie called Gran Torino, and that it's coming out in December. Perhaps the reason for the secrecy is that they are simply *considering* making it into a Dirty Harry film? (Or perhaps Warner is hoping to talk Eastwood into it?) I believe Sudden Impact was originally intended as a stand-alone film, and Eastwood only later decided to adapt it to Dirty Harry. It's highly possible that Eastwood may want to end his action career on a better (and more successful) note than Blood Work. But if this is actually a similar type of thriller, Eastwood must see something in it to make it worth his while. The fact that Warner wants to release it so soon after The Changeling is the real surprise, and the only reason another sequel even sounds remotely possible.

  • March 20, 2008, 12:38 a.m. CST

    Aww, Xiphos

    by Stevie Grant

    screw it. I'll cede any point you want until it comes to 1911 45's. I was born and raised in a very rural area, and all during high school most guys went shooting several times a week. Seriously, we bought botched/canceled orders from local steel manufacturers and welded all sorts of target ranges together. From my experience (given practice), the 45 is the highest caliber someone can accurately and quickly fire.

  • March 20, 2008, 12:41 a.m. CST

    Bring it on.

    by TattooedBillionaire

    If Eastwood is directing this, it will be good. Plus, I don't think he'd ever act in a movie again that he didn't think was great. I hope it's a Dirty Harry movie, but I'm sure it will be great regardless of what it is.

    I misspoke about the "highest caliber," but you know what I meant: you can't fire a pistol quicker, with more precision (counting the punch), than a 45. Personally, I'm a much better shot with a Sig 9mm (I once got 3 turtles, in 4 shots, in 2-3 seconds, at about 40 yards). I have stuck with (for the last few years) the Kimber Pro CDP II with Wilson Combat clips. Overall, it rates the best in my opinion. Especially, when you factor in the situations and distances you would need it in (such as a carjacking or rattlesnake/copperhead encounter).

Still, at least that push-faced blonde bird Clint was knobbing in the '70s and '80s won't be in it.

Gives me goose-bumps to think i might see Dirty H on the big screen one last time.

    You do have a point Yack, about the "out of retirement" thing again, but I don't think it matters. Every story has been done a hundred times, it's WHO is playing that character. Clint has always been an ultimate badass, and I still find it believable that he can still pull it off. Much like Stallone did with Rocky and I think, Bruce did in DH4. I still believe these guys can kick everyone's ass. Probably a factor in that is the lack of 'real' young action heroes now.<p>Behemoth, are you a fat ass geek? If not, maybe you should change your name to 'Slim'.

    SUDDEN IMPACT WAS ALSO BECAUSE OF A SURVEY

    by stamper

    The reason the film was made at all had to do with a survey. Warner Bros. was preparing to release the Sean Connery James Bond film Never Say Never Again (1983) and they took a survey. They asked movie goers to name an actor and a famous part that actor played. Clint Eastwood as "Dirty Harry" scored so high in the survey results, the studio told Eastwood it would be "open" to distributing another "Dirty Harry" film. Eastwood made this film as a result of that meeting.

    For anyone saying he wouldn't need to do this...

    by xannibal

    Historically, Eastwood has done a "one for the studio" and a "one for him", i.e. he makes Warners a mass marketable film, and then turns around and makes whatever he wants and they leave him alone. He's always been loyal to the studio and understands the finances. (This is why he made films like The Rookie and Pink Cadillac) If this is true, I bet he'll immediately go from this to some pet project. All I know is the Dirty Harry series won't end with the lame Dead Pool. I still watch The Enforcer every time it's on Cinemax.

    With Hollywood on a remake/reboot kick, I feared they would butcher Dirty Harry like they did with James Bond. But thank God, Clint is back for the ride! Great! They could totally make his age an issue in this story, kind of like what Stallone did in Rocky 6. I have all the Dirty Harry films on DVD and look forward to this one!

    GO AHEAD, MAKE THIS MOVIE

    by The Bandit

    If true I think this is great. Everybody wants to piss and moan about the resurection of old characters/franchises but in this case I think it could be great. I love Clint in every way. He's a rarity in that hes not only a amazing actor but director as well. He doesnt do things half-assed and I highly doubt he needs the cash, so if he IS doing a Harry movie its b/c he WANTS to and b/c theres a good story there to tell. Yes hes old, nothing gets by you lol and I'm sure thatll factor into the story. I doubt we'll see a 80 year old Harry running down crooks and jumping off rooftops and such. The limitations an aging Harry would face would make his story that much more interesting, it would be part of the story. Whatever the plot would focus on would have to be something intense to move the old man to act in the first place. Regardless, I think the thing to remember is IF this happens I dont think it'd just be for shits and giggles or a cash in. I think Clint could give us a believable elderly Harry unlike say an aging Rambo or John McClane. I doubt this is going to happen, but if so I'm all for it.

    by bobinnova

    First, I admit I was wrong to think that Gran Torino was about the Italian soccer team tragedy. Seeing the direction Clint was going with Million Dollar Baby and Flags/Letters, I thought it was the next logical step for him. <p> However, this is such a bad idea. How many 80s stars are we digging up to revisit their popularity these days? Let's count, shall we? <p> Sly Stallone - Rocky and Rambo <p> Bruce Willis - Die Hard <p> Harrison Ford - Indy <p> Clint - Dirty Harry <p> If Arnold wasn't the governator, you know he'd be in T4 or revisiting Commando. With Mad Max - Fury Road coming up soon, one can only assume Mel would do a cameo given this track record. What's next? <p> Steven Seagal revisiting "Under Siege"? <p> Van Damme revisiting "Kickboxer"? <p> Roger Moore or Sean Connery revisiting James Bond ala "Never Say Never Again"? <p> Hollywood needs to concentrate on the new talent - not rehash the old stuff. If I want to see Dirty Harry, Rambo, Rocky, or Indy, I'll pop in a DVD. Because no matter how much they revisit their characters, nothing will be quite as good as when they were in their prime.

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    What made Firefox great was not the dogfights between the jets. Granted, they were great, and could be much better if made today. But, that does not matter because the first 3/4 of the movie is one of the best espionage suspense movies I've ever seen. Dating myself here, but I saw it on the big screen as a kid. The thing is kids graduating high school today have no idea what the Cold War is. That will lessen the impact on anyone seeing the film today, but not enough to not enjoy Clint's performance. I remember Clint yelling at the dog in Russian. I always thought that was cool for some reason. John Ratzenberger as the submarine commander before he got typecast as Cliff Claven was great too.

    You want to know why these classic characters are being revisite

    by Sledge Hammer

    It's because of just that, they were classic characters, and as such they are still interesting. Especially in light of the fact that in recent years we've had very little in the way of new iconic characters to take their place. Everything is so fucking generic now, both in terms of action, character and the new wave of so-called stars, few of which I'd even classify as real actors, and even fewer of which have any sort of real screen presence. That's why people crave the return of these older characters and the actors who played them, because the big screen was made for iconic larger-than-life characters like these, and it's been damn well starved of any such characters for far too long now. And if we can't make new iconic screen characters to enjoy then we can at least revisit some of the older ones while we still have the chance to do so. Maybe all the youth-obsessed A.D.D. suffering assholes out there object, because, you know, these people have lived lives and have the lines on their non-perfect faces to prove it, but frankly, you people get so much shit catered directly towards you that it's about damn time the rest of us got a little taste of something to our tastes too. Something that reminds us of a time when studio films weren't (almost) all pg-13 toned down over-marketed over-hyped youth oriented mtv-soundtracked fast edited pieces of forgettable fast-food throwaway crap.

    It always amazes me how ass-hurt people get over continuity errors.

Yes ther was a horror movie sbout a kid beating people to death called "Sledgehammer" but that was also a year after Police Squad.<p>I had no objection to the discussion aout gun specs that someone got bent out of shape over. Callahan''s magnum .357 obsession is all about that. Heck, read the comics like Bishop's "Fanni Hall" or Mike Grell's "Jon Sable, Freelance" - both properties are drenched with the gun and weapon fetishism.<p>i always thought that "hunter" was "Sledge hammer" played straight, but apparently it was "Dirty harry' watered down for TV.<p>The chronology makes sense to me. East clintwood today totally looks like a grandfather, not someones day. and the way he was portrayed as a promiscuous casual sex indulging swinger in the first movie, it would be easy to believe he had kinds running around that he never knew about.<p>Oh, and Dead Pool had Harry in a car chase with a radio controlled model car and him shooting the bad guy with a harpoon gun. How can anyone not acknowledge that it was deliberate self parody. Dirty Harry V: Dead Pool = Star Trek V: the Final Frontier. They were comedies, folks. Satire. Mad Magazine style parodies.<p>in a way Magnum Force (Dirty Harry vs. crazed vigilante cops) was a sort of self parody. And that one where his girlfriend played the vigilante rapist-killer was sort of a version of that Dirty Harry/Death Wish crossover I always wanted to see.<p>And after "Do you feel lucky, punk," "A man's got to know his limitations," "go ahead make my day" and other fine nationally popular and presidentially quoted catch phrases, how great wasit that the "Dead Pool" catch phrase was "Well, I guess you're just shit out of luck"?<p>Harry's pretty bad at covering his partners. They team him up with a black guy, an Asian, they go to the hospital. They team him with a feminist, she gets herself killed. If this movie happens and it's set in a gay San Francisco, wanna bet he gets teamed with a gay cop who gets killed?

    Then don't

    You know, I don't think there will ever be an Indiana Jones 4 either, it's too good to be true, anyone who said in the past there will never be one was 500% right. I mean, they are not making a new one ever, right ?

    If it has to be done, let Eastwood do it right

    by liljuniorbrown

    He won't screw it up, he made Unforgiven, Mystic River, and Million Dollar Baby.... I mean Unforgiven and Mystic River alone are enough to make him one of the greatest of all times. Speaking of which he should get Sean Penn to play the villian, that would be kick ass. I can see him now in that car with his rockabilly side burns mowing down cops. Make this movie happen soon please.

    Isn't there one or two left...

    ...for that horrible Starsky & Hutch remake? As for Clint comin' back -- YES!

    Hope Clint hires Lalo Schifrin do a retro funky-ass score

    by KillaKane

    Would be the cherry on the pie if Clint got his old scoring buddy back for this outing. Uber cool news to have a grizzled Callahan back with his 44, nothing deadlier than a pissed off old gipper! ;-)

    That would be awesome.

    The actual post was about Sledge Hammer coming before The Naked Gun, as the movies weren't like the Police Squad tv show. They made Drebin a bumbler and everything was played more obvious (and not as funny in my opinion) and threw in some "Harry" riffs that seemed derived from "Sledge." Jokes about kicking in the door and getting the foot caught as well as shooting someone after losing the badge were done first on Sledge before they made their way into the Naked Gun movies.

    Lalo Schifrin...

    by ebonic_plague

    ...HELL YES. Accept no substitutes. Though I admit I would be okay with the idea of Schifrin collaborating with, I dunno, RZA or someone for the score. Just NO NU METAL!!!

    letterman

    by ciroslive

    I think he was on Letterman late last year and Dave asked him if he'd do another Dirty harry. Letterman said it would be interesting to see him older, and the crowd seemed to agree with applause. Clint seemed taken aback by this and said he would consider it...

    BOURNE VS DIRTY HARRY

    With enough shakey came to turn you into Conan O'Brien during his monologue.

    Wow...I hope this is true

    by The_Crowing_90

    Another Dirty Harry would be great. We've had Rambo, Rocky, John McClane, and Indiana Jones come back, why not Dirty Harry? That also makes me want...another Snake Plissken movie. With Kurt Russel. Not a shitty remake. Maybe I'm the only one who wants it. Oh well.

    Queefer, you're not crazy, we're right--it must be JACKMAN!

    by kevred

    Much as I dislike reboots, if they want to do it as well as it could be done, that's who they'd do it with. Imagine that Wolverine scowl with a Magnum at the other end of it instead of claws.

    THAT Makes My Day

    I cannot wait for this to happen. Thank you Mr. Eastwood. Opening night, no doubt.

    dirty will die

    by Gobstopper

    Given Clint's recent movies, this will be awesome but bring tears to your eyes as dirty harry dies in the end.

    Why is Dirty Harry tracking down Starsky & Hutch?

    Ben Stiller for Dirty Harry.

    Maybe he'll dig up Charles Bronson for a buddy film.

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    Clint's a little too long in the tooth to be doing this stuff. It's gonna look silly.

  • May 12, 2008, 5:44 p.m. CST

    Does anyone think he has to do that 1 for 1 deal anymore?

    by Alfred_Packer

    I think he's earned his corner office by now. As for a new Dirty Harry film, its simply just not believable. These other folks have been talking about doing Die Hard 4 and Indy for years. If Clint's been waxing romantically at any time in the past few decades about reprising Harry Callahan on screen again, I'd love to see the link.
