While Clint Eastwood’s next directorial project, a remake of A Star is Born, is on hold for Beyonce’s pregnancy, the 81-year-old is plotting a return to acting to fill the gap. He’s set to star in the drama Trouble with the Curve for director Robert Lorenz (who also happens to be Eastwood’s longtime assistant director), and now it looks like they’ve found their female lead. While Sandra Bullock was initially eyed for the role, her schedule is too packed to fit the movie in so now Amy Adams has been offered the part. The story centers on “an aging baseball scout who’s losing his sight and decides to take a road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to eye a hot prospect.”
Variety reports that Bullock and Adams were eyed from the get-go, and now it’s Adams’ turn to see if she can move her schedule around to take the part. Adams is currently filming Man of Steel and will next be seen in The Muppets.
