EXCLUSIVE: Clint Eastwood is circling to next direct The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, and has been in discussions with Disney/Fox drama based on the life of a security guard whose life was turned upside down in a moment after it was leaked by law enforcement to a reporter that Jewell was a possible suspect in the Olympic Park bombing during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. From the moment he was outed by an article written by an overzealous reporter at the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Jewell went from hero to one of the most hated men in America.

This is shooting in the summer. The Mule filmed in the summer and was done in time for December. So this will probably either open on the 13th as Jumanji counterprogramming, or limited on Christmas Day and expand in January. Fox almost always had at least two wide movies out in December (2018 was the exception, due to Alita being pushed back and Bohemian Rhapsody pushed forward), but Disney could throw in a big monkey wrench into the situation.

if Disney's new strategy with Fox is just to make Clint Eastwood awards season films then maybe this acquisition won't be so bad after all

i wouldn't want to be the guy who has to explain to Clint what Disney+ is after this gets dumped there.

He'll probably rant "what the hell is it with this generation?" or something along those lines like he does throughout The Mule.

If this is shooting in the summer it'll definitely get a similar rollout to what they gave The Revenant, Hidden Figures, and The Post, even if those were pre-Disney takeover.
