Clint Eastwood may get back in front of the camera for Trouble with the Curve

10.05.2011

It was expected that the crotchety neighbor role in GRAN TORINO would be Clint Eastwood's acting swan song as he shifted his energy behind the camera for the remainder of his career, but that's apparently (and thankfully) not the case.

Deadline says that the living legend is considering another screen part in TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE, which would find him as "an aging baseball scout, who’s losing his sight, and heads on a last road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to scout a hotshot prospect." So no ventilating bad guys with a large caliber handgun, alas.

The Warner Bros. movie would mark the feature directing debut of Clint's Malpaso producing partner Robert Lorenz, who you can assume has absorbed plenty of knowledge from the veteran director -- Lorenz has served as assistant director on many of Eastwood's efforts, going back to BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY.

Eastwood (81 and going strong!) was planning to follow directing J. EDGAR with an update of A STAR IS BORN with Beyonce, but the singer's current pregnant status has put that on hold.

Clint could sit in front of a camera on a respirator and it would still be the performance of the year.

Anything about Clint Eastwood getting in front of the camera again is a good news to me.

kinda sounds a little too much like the coach in MILLION DOLLAR BABY if he's going to reprise a character id rather see him pull a final Harry Callahan via ROCKY BALBOA style. anyone wanna bet if morgan freeman makes an appearance ?

Hmmm, I am wondering if Clint has it in him. The man is pretty old and it kinda felt like he was struggling in Gran Torino. I think he's a fantastic actor and director, but I gotta wonder how long he can keep going.

sounds cool! Has Clint ever been in a sports movie before? If he hasn't then I'm surprised!

I know it's apparently a really well liked movie but I hated Gran Torino. The worst acting I've seen in any movie other then maybe The Room.

Sounds good

This actually sounds like a perfect role for Eastwood at this stage of his career, so long as it doesn't get overly sentimental.

Great!

He says he'd make movies well into his 100s if he can...and I hope he does.

That actually sounds like a good role for him. I'd be interested in that especially if he directed it too.
