Scott Eastwood made his debut in the 2006 American war film ‘Flags of Our Fathers,‘ directed by his father, Clint Eastwood. Even though the film received positive reviews upon release, it could not achieve success at the box office. The following year, he starred as ‘Eric’ in the Tommy O'Haver-directed crime horror drama film ‘An American Crime.’ Due to some conflict with the film’s distributor, First Look International, ‘An American Crime’ could not see a theatrical release. It was later released on The Showtime television network. Scott Eastwood then went on to star in films like ‘Player 5150’ (2008), ‘Shannon's Rainbow’ (2009), ‘Invictus’ (2009), ‘Enter Nowhere’ (2011), ‘The Forger’ (2012), and ‘Trouble with the Curve’ (2012).
In 2013, he starred as ‘Deputy Carl Hartman’ in the American slasher horror film ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ directed by John Luessenhop. It was a direct sequel to the 1974 film ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre,’ and was the seventh installment in ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.’ The film opened to mostly negative reviews from critics and was a moderate success at the box office. Eastwood was next seen playing the role of ‘Sergeant Miles’ in the 2014 American war film ‘Fury.’ The movie received praise from critics and was a major box office success. He next appeared in ‘The Perfect Wave’ (2014), ‘The Longest Ride’ (2015), ‘Diablo’ (2015), and ‘Snowden’ (2016).
Eastwood played the role of ‘Lieutenant GQ Edwards’ in the 2016 American superhero film ‘Suicide Squad‘ directed by David Ayer. The film failed to impress critics with Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair calling it “boring and ugly.” Despite the negative reviews, ‘Suicide Squad’ was a box office hit, grossing over $746 million against a budget of $175 million. In 2018, he appeared in the Steven S. DeKnight-directed American science fiction monster film ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising.’ The film opened to a mixed reception and failed to do well at the box office.
In 2021, Scott Eastwood starred in the action thriller film ‘Dangerous,’ which was directed by David Hackl. He is all set to appear in the upcoming romantic comedy film ‘I Want You Back.’
