Clint Eastwood has supposedly convinced Doris Day to return to the movies. She hasn't been in one since... (gulp)... the summer of 1968 when the romantic comedy With Six You Get Eggroll premiered. It had a plot not entirely unlike The Brady Bunch which premiered the following year. Day's character even had three sons she was bringing along into the new blended family.
This rumor seems suspect. If they can't convince the legend to spend even one night at an industry event honoring her, which is often the rumor in regards to the sore subject of the annual Honorary Oscar selections -- why would she be willing to spend weeks in front of a movie camera and all the promotion that that would then entail, including surely, more events than just one honoring her to promote it when it premiered!
I'm not sure I believe this rumor at all though it's cute to think of Octogenarian Eastwood strolling across the street or the lawn or what have you in Carmel to hand the 91 year old legend a movie script. Does she even remember what they look like? There's no word yet on what the movie or the role is but Clint Eastwood always has a lot of projects simmering so it could be anything. I suddenly pictured her in the cast of that probably aborted Eastwood-helmed A Star is Born remake with Beyoncé. Heh.
UPDATE: Doris Day has since denied this but then she would.
