‘Loren Dean is joining Clint Eastwood’s next film The Mule as a DEA agent in the film which Eastwood will be producing, directing, and starring in. The Warner Bros.’ movie is based on a 2014 New York Times Magazine piece by Sam Dolnick and follows Earl Stone (Eastwood), a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive—easy enough but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier and just hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper). Dean will be playing DEA agent Brown, alongside fellow agent Cooper in their hunt for Stone. Eastwood will produce via his Malpaso banner, along with Imperative’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas.
Dean can next be seen in the upcoming New Regency feature Ad Astra, written and directed by James Gray and starring alongside Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones and Donald Sutherland. The film will be released wide in January, 2019. Loren is best known for his work in the features How To Make an American Quilt, Enemy of the State, Gattaca, Apollo 13, Mrs. Winterbourne, The End of Violence and Mumford. He is repped by Kim Callahan at Industry Entertainment.’
