Clint Eastwood agreed to score the music for new movie Grace Is Gone after receiving calls from both producer Harvey Weinstein and the film's star, John Cusack.
Eastwood has scored the soundtracks for his own films, and Weinstein and Cusack tentatively approached the movie mogul to help them.
Cusack explains, "It was Harvey's idea. He said, 'What do you think if we ask Clint to do it?' And I said, 'Why not?' I've thrown a hail mary before.' I threw one for Bruce Springsteen when I was doing High Fidelity and he said yes.
"I don't understand why people don't do that more. The worst thing they can do is turn you down. So Harvey called Clint and then I called him. He had seen the film and he really, really loved it."
