Eastwood to Helm Supernatural Themed Film

Here is some interesting news coming out of Variety: Clint Eastwood is set to direct a supernatural thriller titled Hereafter. I do not recall Clint tackling this genre before, but is there any doubt that he would do a wonderful job? Did not think so.

The plot details are being kept under close guard, but it is said to be in the vein of The Sixth Sense. Hopefully not so much as to be a rehash, but I doubt that is the case. The spec script was penned by Peter Morgan, whose most recent credit is Ron Howard's Frost/Nixon.

My thoughts keep coming back to Clint directing a supernatural thriller. The man is an absolutely incredible director and he shows no signs of slowing down. He was behind the recent drama Changeling and he has Gran Torino coming next month, not to mention the back to back releases of Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima in 2006, and is currently preparing the Nelson Mandela centered The Human Factor.
