Clint Eastwood is sitting pretty with his 4 Oscar wins, 2 for Million Dollar Baby and 2 for Unforgiven. Will J. Edgar add to his collection?
Warner Bros has set the Clint Eastwood-directed Leonardo DiCaprio-starringJ Edgar for a limited release on Wednesday, Nov. 9, with a wide release set for two days later.
Eastwood has his Oscar but DiCaprio has yet to pull out a win, nominated 3 times prior, twice for leading actor (The Aviator & Blood Diamond) and once for supporting role (Gilbert Grape). Will J. Edgar be the performance to earn him his first Oscar?
Set to follow the FBI director’s scandalous career and controversial private life as a homosexual and rumored cross dresser, it sure smells like an Oscar movie.
Awards aside I think its safe to say with Clint Eastwood directing and Leonardo DiCaprio starring, we are in for something great.
