Clint Eastwood made Warner Brothers executives’ night, last night as he made an impromptu appearance at the kick off at unveiling of the new 25,000 sq. ft., expansion for the Warner Bros. Studio Tour: ‘Stage 48: Script To Screen.’
Clint casually sauntered in at the beginning, skipping the red carpet, going through the door and literally surprising everyone. This ageless icon came by himself, and casually strolled in, dressed in a polo shirt, slacks and sneakers, much to the delighted aghast of all. An insider told me that no one knew he was on the lot prepping for his upcoming hero pilot Sully Sullenberger film, starring Tom Hanks as Sully. He was told about the opening and he wanted to see it.
Eastwood was quickly was surrounded by excited executives and given a tour. Clint, whose scripts, memorabilia and more is featured throughout the tour, signed a long-term pact with the Studio in 1975.
I managed to ask him what he thought of it all, and true to Clint, who seemed transfixed and impressed uttered, “fantastic, the whole thing is impressive.” Besides all things Clint, the original ‘Friends’ set is there; you can act out a scene, the Batpod from “The Dark Knight,” the space capsule from “Gravity,” the Exosuit from ‘Edge Of Tomorrow,’ and so much more. Clint is right, it’s all really fun. I tried all the photo opportunities, flying on the broom out of ‘Harry Potter,’ the ramped up motorcycle in ‘Batman,’ and a space suit from ‘Gravity.’ Clint however, skipped all that but just looked on with bemusement. Doesn’t get much cooler than him.
