Doris Day NOT Doing Eastwood Film

Yesterday came a report picked up by numerous outlets indicating that famed actress Doris Day would be returning to film after nearly a half-century away.

That initial report appeared in a German tabloid and claimed that Day was convinced to return by Oscar-winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood who wanted her for his next directorial effort. There’s just one problem – it’s not true.

The publicity team for the 93-year-old actress said in a statement to Deadline:

“While Doris always appreciates hearing from her fans, the rumors about her returning to the big screen are not true. She adores her longtime friend Clint Eastwood, but Doris’ recent and current focus remains on her Doris Day Animal Foundation, which continues to help animals and the people who love them.”

Day hasn’t appeared on screen since 1968’s “With Six You Get Eggroll”.
