Matthew Lillard Finds Trouble with the Curve


Announced last October, Clint Eastwood is planning a return to acting with Trouble with the Curve, to be directed by Robert Lorenz. Today, EW reports that Matthew Lillard is now in negotiations to appear opposite both Eastwood and the previously announced Amy Adams.

From screenwriter Randy Brown, Trouble with the Curve features Eastwood as a baseball scout who is losing his vision with his age just as he and his daughter (Adams) take a final road trip to Atlanta to check out a prospective talent.

Lillard, who recently starred in The Descendants, would play a rival scout.

Director Lorenz has been working with Eastwood as an assistant director as far back as The Bridges of Madison County. This project will mark his full directing debut and Eastwood’s first time in front of the cameras since 2008’s Gran Torino.
