Luckily for western genre fans everywhere, Eastwood ended up reading the script and he fell in love with it right away. He liked it so much that he decided to both direct and star, but he wanted to wait until he was old enough to take on the role properly. Eastwood was extremely dedicated to the script, wanting to make sure that everything was executed exactly as it was originally written. It was love at lightning, and Eastwood was ready to put in the work to make the film a reality.
Eastwood was able to make the film on a modest budget and a great supporting cast that included Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman. Eastwood wasn’t even alone in hesitating to sign on to the project, as Hackman wasn’t sure at first whether he would make the film.
By 1992 when the movie was released, Sonia Chernus must have really regretted her call.

If there’s a lesson here, it’s never to take a friend’s movie recommendation. They may have died wrong.
