Trailer Watch: 'Trouble with the Curve' Shows Off Eastwood's Comedic Chops -- His Last Starring Role?

Check out the new trailer for Clint Eastwood-starrer “Trouble with the Curve,” about an aging Atlanta Braves scout (Eastwood) who, despite his failing eyesight, remains determined to take one last recruiting trip. Eastwood’s longtime producing partner, Robert Lorenz, makes his directing debut. Luckily, his star, reprising his “Gran Torino” attitude, could help in a pinch.

“Trouble with the Curve,” written by Randy Brown, co-stars Amy Adams as Eastwood’s daughter, Mickey, who reluctantly agrees to help him scout. Matthew Lillard, John Goodman and Justin Timberlake, as a rival scout who takes an interest in Mickey, also have supporting roles.

The film releases September 21 (the same weekend Brad Pitt’s “Moneyball” opened last year), via Warner Bros. But keep your eyes peeled on Telluride — this Oscar-friendly flick could have an early debut there.
