So Clint Eastwood will direct the untitled Nelson Mandela biopic. Whether you like Eastwood’s latest ventures of Gran Torino or Flags of Our Fathers, Hollywood has thrown him the wheel and he’s in the Mandela’s driver seat. Eastwood has also cast Morgan Freeman as Mandela which will probably be Freeman’s role of a lifetime. Eastwood has also cast his son Scott Reeves in the flick, which is cool-cool. A little nepotism never hurt anyone in Hollywood.
But here’s my issue: Somebody of color should be directing this film.
