Last week, we reported that Clint Eastwood was planning to return to acting by signing on to star in Trouble with the Curve. Eastwood had previously claimed that Gran Torino would be his last performance, but it looks like he’ll return to help out his longtime assistant director Robert Lorenz on his directorial debut, especially since Eastwood’s next directing gig, A Star Is Born, has been delayed due to Beyonce’s pregnancy. Curve would have Eastwood playing aging baseball scout who’s losing his eyesight and takes his daughter on a road trip to help evaluate a young prospect.
Twitch is now reporting that Sandra Bullock is in talks to play the daughter. If Bullock takes the role, expect this flick to hit the pipeline fast. The Oscar-winning actress will next be seen in Stephen Daldry’s Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close and next year she stars in Alfonso Cuaron’s long-awaited sci-fi film Gravity.
