Scott Eastwood admits he has been approached to remake his father Clint Eastwood's classic 1966 Spaghetti Western 'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly' but he would never do it because he thinks it would be "cheap"
Scott Eastwood would feel "cheap" remaking his father Clint Eastwood's movies.
The 'Fury' actor would love to appear in a "really good Western" but has deliberately turned down projects he felt were just trying to mimic the work his screen legend dad did on Spaghetti Western films like 'A Fist Full of Dollars' and 'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly'.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph's Style magazine, Scott said: "For years I've been approached to do Westerns. People trying to remake 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' with me in my father's role - but it has always felt so cheap. So yes, I'm cautious.
"I remember watching 'Unforgiven' for the first time as a boy. I hadn't realised until then how big a star Dad was, how good he was and how many people loved him.
"All of which is not to say I would never consider doing a really good Western with a great director. Actually I'd love to do one at some point."
The 29-year-old star has learned a lot from his famous father, including never complaining when he is at work and to always give his best.
Scott admits Clint, 84, has been the single biggest influence on his career.
He said: "I hate watching myself back because sometimes they'll use a take you think you could have done better, but I know I'll get better if I work at it. My dad always used to say, 'Show up, don't complain, listen and learn.'
"My dad was always clear that anything I did, I should do well."
