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