A first trailer for Clint Eastwood's new thriller The Mule has debuted online. Click below to watch it:
The film is based on the true story of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran in his 80s who became a drug dealer and courier for the Sinaloa Cartel.
Eastwood plays Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Unbeknownst to him, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel.
Bradley Cooper stars as Colin Bates, the DEA agent who is then assigned to catch Stone and bring him to justice.
Starring alongside Eastwood and Cooper are Laurence Fishburne, Michael Peña, Dianne Wiest, Andy Garcia, Alison Eastwood and Taissa Farmiga.
Eastwood directs from a script from Nick Schenk, who he previously worked with on Gran Torino.
The Mule will be released into UK cinemas in January of 2019.
