Clint Eastwood Baseball Drama Trouble With The Curve Moves Up A Week
Say what you will about Clint Eastwood's most recent string of films, there is no denying that he is a hard worker. Now over 80 he is still managing to direct at least one film a year, and sometimes even gets to two. This year, however, is a bit different. Rather than directing a new movie, Eastwood has instead decided to put himself as an actor in the hands of his friend, partner and director Robert Lorenz for the baseball drama Trouble With The Curve. The project is the first time that Eastwood has worked as an actor without himself as a director since 1993's In The Line of Fire (it's also his first acting gig period since 2008's Gran Torino). And today we have word that we'll be getting to see his performance in the movie one week earlier than expected.
THR has learned that Warner Bros.. has decided to move up Trouble With The Curve from September 28th to September 21st.While the movie was originally going to go up against the animated Hotel Transylvania, the sci-fi thriller Looper and the education drama Won't Back Down, now it will instead go head-to-head against the comic book action movie Dredd, David Ayer's End of Watch, and the horror flick House At The End Of The Street. The film is based on an original screenplay by Randy Brown and stars Eastwood as an aging baseball scout. Realizing that he is slowly losing his eyesight, he decides that it's time to retire, but not before taking a road trip down to Atlana for one last scouting mission. His daughter, played by Amy Adams, decides to go with him and the two of them grow closer over the course of the trip.
Trouble With The Curve also stars John Goodman and Justin Timberlake, and fore more about the movie you can head over to our Blend Film Database.
