Clint Eastwood Puts Cinematic “Heart” Into ‘American Sniper’

Opening in select theaters December 25, American Sniper centers on U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), a war vet who spent four tours of duty in Iraq. Known as the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, Kyle’s autobiography (which the film is based on) spent 18 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

Sienna Miller also stars as Kyle’s iron-willed wife Tara Kyle in the film, which is directed by Clint Eastwood.

During the American Sniper press conference Tara Kyle praised the dedication screenwriter Jason Hall, Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood had while making the film.

“I do know before they left, (Clint) stopped and he was a little choked up and said, ‘I just want you to know, that your story has my heart.’ I can’t ask for better than that – truly. I feel like this is about the heart of our men and women who serve and their families.”

Vin Diesel is no stranger to successful franchise flicks, thanks to his work on the Pitch Black and  Fast and Furious films. He has an inevitable hit on his hands with Guardians of the Galaxy, and this time out he explains why playing the mighty tree Groot was a therapeutic and gratifying experience.

Part of his inspiration for playing Groot came from his kids, who wanted him to play the role. Diesel may be known for his physical prowess, but Guardians of the Galaxy required him to flex his voice acting muscles. It’s a craft he developed while playing the lead voice in Brad Bird’s evocative animated feature The Iron Giant.
