Highlight Story

Clint Eastwood is reportedly in negotiations to star in Trouble with the Curve. He is believed to be considering a return to acting to play Reese Witherspoon’s father in the movie.

Trouble with the Curve tells the story of an ageing baseball scout who has lost his eyesight but sets out on one last trip with his daughter to watch an upcoming star.

According to, Amy Adams is also believed to be a contender for the role most likely to go to Reese Witherspoon. Sandra Bullock was earlier rumoured to be in the race to but is believed to have moved on, Contactmusic reported.

Although Clint had previously declared his last acting role would be in 2008 movie Gran Torino, he recently admitted he would consider playing the next James Bond.

“I would act if the right role came along. But I’m not looking to do it because there are not that many great roles that would be something different for me to play, to conquer,” he was quoted as saying.

“I don’t know, I never say never, like James Bond or something,” he added.
