“This is very different from anything I’ve ever done before” reveals Clint Eastwood on set of THE MULE, a new movie opening in Irish cinemas this weekend. The script is loosely based on journalist Sam Dolnick’s 2014 New York Times Magazine profile of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran who was convicted of hauling over a ton of cocaine into Michigan for the notorious Sinaloa cartel.

Go behind the scenes with the 88 year old director and his cast in this new behind the scenes video.

THE MULE is at cinemas from Jan 25th
