Clint Eastwood to Shoot ‘Richard Jewell’ in Georgia Despite Boycott Over Anti-Abortion Law
Clint Eastwood’s next film “Richard Jewell” is listed among the Georgia Film Commission’s projects set to shoot in the state this summer — despite the calls for a boycott of production in Georgia over the state’s new anti-abortion “heartbeat” law.

Local news outlets, including Wxia in Atlanta noted that the film is set to begin in Georgia this summer.

Reps for Eastwood, Warner Bros., which is releasing the film, and the Georgia Film Commission did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Previously titled “The Ballad of Richard Jewell,” the film tells the true story of a security guard who was falsely accused in the bombing that took place at Atlanta’s Centennial Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics. Paul Walter Hauser plays Jewell alongside a cast that includes Sam Rockwell, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde and Kathy Bates.
