Clint Eastwood is a fucking genius. He's directed both hits Changeling and Gran Torino last year alone, and this year the kid is back with a new project Invictus, a biopic of Nelson Mandela as he hosts the 1995 Rugby World Cup in attempt to bring his country together.

In Contention has posted the first picture of Morgan Freeman fully dressed as Nelson Mandela from Invictus yesterday June 7th. Check it out below, and Invictus, expected to be nominated for "Best Picture" at the 2009 Academy Awards from post site, hits theaters December 11th.
