Nobody Runs Forever
Inspired by a True Story
The Mule was inspired by the story of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran in his 80s who became the world's oldest and most prolific drug mule for the Sinaloa Cartel.

It is Clint Eastwood's first credited acting role since the 2012 film Trouble with the Curve.

This is the second collaboration between Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper.

This marks director Clint Eastwood's second collaboration with Laurence Fishburne.

This movie marks actress Alison Eastwood's fourth film under father Clint Eastwood's direction, and the second film Michael Peña has worked on with Clint.

This was not the only time Clint Eastwood played a "mule" as he also played one of a different kind in Two Mules for Sister Sara in 1970.

Initially, Ruben Fleischer was supposedly set to direct the movie.

"The Mule" was partially filmed in Augusta, Georgia, the birthplace of co-star Lawrence Fishburne.

This movie was the first theatrically released film for actor Loren Dean.
