I'll have a full writeup from the Changelingpress conference later, but wanted to quickly post this little tidbit for you: Clint Eastwood confirmed there will be no more Dirty Harry films, which presumably means his newest film, Gran Torino, will not star everyone's favorite badass cop. Asked whether it's true that we'll see more of Dirty Harry, Eastwood said definitively, "That is not correct." Angelina Jolie then quipped, "I am!" and Eastwood fired back with a laugh, "Yeah, Dirty Harriet, starring Tomb Raider."

Eastwood said that for one thing, he's just too old to be believably playing the role of a working cop at this point, and that while he enjoyed the role and saying "do I feel lucky?" he's more interested in being behind the camera at this point than in front of it, which is just where he is now at this point in his career. Not sure if that means that he's not, in fact, starring in Gran Torino (as reported); they were pretty iron-fisted about keeping the press conference questions related to Changeling.

So, there you have it, folks. Sorry to disappoint, but if you want to see Dirty Harry, you'll just have to rent the DVDs.
