Clint Eastwood’s ‘Dirty Harry 6’ Pitch

Clint Eastwood does not show any signs of slowing down. While The Dirty Harry series ended after The Dead Pool, Eastwood talks about revisiting his role as the detective. He pitches an idea for a new installment of the saga.

“Harry is retired,” he begins. “He’s standing in a stream, fly-fishing. He gets tired of using the pole — and BA-BOOM! Or Harry is retired and he chases bad guys with his walker? Maybe he owns a tavern. These guys come in and they won’t pay their tab, so Harry reaches below the bar. Hey, guys, the next shot’s on me . . .

In all seriousness, there are no plans to bring back The Dirty Harry franchise. Eastwood is more interested in roles that take him to new places.

“I guess if there was a truly great script or something, but it’s hard enough to find good scripts any time, let alone one you have to bend to make it fit some franchise,” he says. “The movies that interest me now take me to new places.”

At least the entire saga is available to stream on HBO Max. Fans have a lot of Clint Eastwood material to watch through the new year.
