A new take on Every Which Way But Loose is headed to the big screen
Every Which Way But Loose, the 1978 comedy that teamed Clint Eastwood with an orangutan named Clyde, is heading back to the big screen. Deadline has the news, reporting that The Sex Trip‘s writer and director Anthony Cohen has been hired to helm the new version. James Fargo, who directed the original Every Which Way But Loose, is producing.
Scripted by Jeremy Joe Kronsberg, the original Every Which Way But Loose stars Eastwood as a trucker, Philo Beddoe, who, alongside his pet orangutan, finds plenty of trouble on the American Highway. Every Which Way But Loose grossed $85 million at the domestic box office and later received a sequel, Any Which Way You Can, in 1980. The follow-up brought in an additional $70 million.
The remake is looking to begin production this spring. Check back for casting updates on the project as they become available.
