It's been almost two decades since Clint Eastwood starred in a feature film that didn't also require him to sit in the director's chair. But in the upcoming baseball drama "Trouble with the Curve," the legendary 82-year old actor takes orders from first-time helmer Robert Lorenz. Lorenz is no stranger to Eastwood. The former assistant director worked on eight of his films, including the Oscar-winning boxing drama "Million Dollar Baby." In "Curves," Eastwood plays an aging baseball scout who, due to his failing eyesight, knows his career is about done, so he decides to take his daughter (Amy Adams) for one last recruiting trip. The film, which also co-stars Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Matthew Lillard, will be hitting theaters on Sept 21st, just in time for the MLB playoffs.
An aging Atlanta Braves baseball scout named Gus (Eastwood) sets out to discover if he still has value as a scout and as dad. Gus brings his daughter (Adams) on his final scouting trip to scout a new top prospect. Along the way Gus reconnects with Johnny (Timberlake), a rival scout who has a friendly history with Gus, the man who scouted him when he was a baseball player. Johnny also has interest in his daughter, something Gus does not approve of.
