Trivia The Mule

The movie was inspired by the real story of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran in his 80s who became the world's oldest and most prolific drug mule for the Sinaloa Cartel. More than six years later, Clint Eastwood is back in front of camera, as he started in film industry. It will be his first appearance since 'Trouble with the curve' and 'Gran Torino', the last film he directed and starred. This was not the only time Clint Eastwood played a "mule." He also played one of a different kind in 'Two Mules For Sister Sara' with Shirley MacLaine.
