Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business. He is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel!
He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl. There is the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him. It’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him…
The Mule marks Oscar-winner Eastwood’s first time on both sides of the camera since he starred in 2009’s critically acclaimed Gran Torino.
Bradley, who stars as Bates, received his most recent Oscar nominations for his work with Clint. Acting in and producing American Sniper. He will next be seen in his feature directorial debut, A Star Is Born.
Clint Eastwood directed from a screenplay by Nick Schenk. It was inspired by the New York Times Magazine article “The Sinaloa Cartels’ 90-Year-Old Drug Mule” by Sam Dolnick.
The Mule will be released in theaters December 14, 2018, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
