So yeah, when I heard the title of Clint Eastwood’s new movie “Trouble with the Curve”, I thought it was about, you know, curves. Womanly curves. That it was some kind of chick flick. I swear, I thought that, so I never bothered to cover it. Turns out, it’s a baseball movie. About an old guy played by Eastwood. Go figure. This’ll teach me to hear something, have a knee-jerk reaction to it, and then never cover it again.
Anyways. So, here are your first looks at Eastwood (who, in a rarity nowadays, doesn’t also direct), Justin Timberlake, and Amy Adams. The film finds Clint playing an ailing baseball scout in his twilight years who takes his daughter (Amy Adams) along for one last recruiting trip so she can help him scout. I’m guessing they bond on the road and all that good stuff. Hopefully Adams’ character won’t have to do any running in the movie, especially not in those boots.
Robert Lorenz, who has been an assistant director for Eastwood on a dozen of films, including “Space Cowboys”, “Blood Work”, and “Million Dollar Baby”, makes his directorial debut on the film.
