Trouble with the Curve Trailer

Despite stating that Gran Torino would be his final film as an actor, Clint Eastwood returns to acting in Trouble with the Curve.

Eastwood once again steps in front of the camera to play Gus, an aging Atlanta Braves scout whose poor eyesight prompts him to enlist his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), to be his eyes for him for one last recruiting trip.

The cast includes John Goodman, Matthew Lillard, Robert Patrick, Scott Eastwood, Joe Massingill, and Justin Timberlake. The film will be directed by Robert Lorenz, who makes his film directing debut and has been involved as a producer in many of Eastwood’s films.

Trouble with the Curve is the first film Clint Eastwood will star in since In the Line of Fire to not have him as director. The film premieres on September 21, 2012, which is around the same time that Moneyball, last year’s baseball film, was released.

    Seriously… WHY do people keep putting Justin Timberlake in stuff?

    Anyway, I love Clint… he could quite possibly be the coolest old dude EVER. Watching his westerns makes you realize just how smooth and powerful the man is. God bless him.

      @Camiele, coz he somehow has paid his way into Hollywood. He’s got a Coen bros movie too, I think. So it’s not the last time.

      @Camiele, having said that… Clint has been disappoint since Iwo Jima. Gran Torino was mildly entertainning but Changeling, Invictus and Hereafter were pretty yuck~ one worse than the other. xD Hereafter was pretty cheap looking too. :(

        @amy, Aww. Well, I really loved Changeling. Probably Angelina’s best performance, as far as I’m concerned. But, in terms of Clint’s acting, I’m pretty much in love with his bravado in his older films. I haven’t actually seen any of his newer films (that he’s acted in)… well, except Million Dollar Baby… which was awesome and just confirmed my love for him.

          @Camiele, I was a puddle of tears watching Million Dollar Baby. xD You should watch Iwo Jima, it’s got some of Japan’s finest actors and confirms that Ninomiya (Kuro en Tekkon) should stay away from Arashi and focus on just acting. LOL

      @Camiele, I feel apathy towards Timberlake as an actor. If I see his name, I wouldn’t groan as compared to watching a film that has Kristen Stewart attached to it.

      • amy says:

        @Rodrigo, hahahaha. In defense of Stewart, she was okay in Into the Wild. xD But then again, it wasn’t about her. xD I would groan if Stewart were cast in something I would like to watch though, and Timberlake has been doing that as of lately…

      • Camiele says:

        @Rodrigo, Having seen this man since his MMC days, it’s kinda hard to be apathetic for me. He acts teh same as he did when he was on the Disney channel. And yet LEGIT directors want him in their films. It kinda bothers me, but then again I guess I get a bit too emotional when it comes to film and music and how cash is pretty much the only thing that matters to anyone anymore.

        However, I guess it’s lucky for me that I haven’t seen anything that Kristen Stewart’s been in since Panic Room… so there’s that… Always leave on a good note… HaHa.

    @amy, HaHA. I think I shall watch Iwo Jima. It’s funny how some idols-turned-actors should just STAY actors… HaHA.
