Clint Eastwood May Star in TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE

     October 5, 2011


Clint Eastwood’s next film may not be as a director. The legendary actor/director is in talks to star in the drama Trouble with the Curve for Warner Bros. Deadline reports that Robert Lorenz is making his directorial debut with the project that centers on an aging baseball scout who heads on a last road trip to Atlanta with his daughter as he’s losing his sight. Eastwood was set to make his next directorial project the remake of A Star Is Born, but star Beyonce’s unexpected pregnancy has pushed the production date back. Eastwood had previously professed that his starring turn in Gran Torino would likely serve as his last as he had no plans to act again, but the Randy Brown-scripted baseball drama must have caught his eye. The fact that Lorenz has been a longtime business partner of Eastwood’s, and even served as an assistant director on a number of his films, probably had something to do with changing his mind as well.
