If you had thought that Gran Torino was Clint Eastwood’s last time in front of the camera, think again. He has returned – and this time in a film that he isn’t directing, his first time in front of the camera for a director other than himself since 1993′s In the Line of Fire. In this case, it happens to be for the directorial debut of Robert Lorenz, one of Eastwood’s producers and first assistant directors over the past fifteen or so years.
Trouble with the Curve looks more light-hearted than most Eastwood-starring movies. He stars as a retiring baseball scout who is reconnecting with his daughter, played by Amy Adams. If Eastwood isn’t enough to get your seat in the butt (and yes, even though he’s celebrity-endorsed that clown Mitt Romney, I’ll still see anything the dude does), the cast is rounded out with Justin Timberlake (come on… admit you like him nowadays), John Goodman, Robert Patrick, Matthew Lillard, and Clint’s son Scott Eastwood.
The film will be released in the US on September 21, 2012 and expand to other markets in the following weeks.
What do you think of the trailer? Wishing Clint would have hung up his hat or are you excited to see him grumble and mumble his way through another film?
