Timberlake Finds Trouble With The Curve
He's in talks for the Clint Eastwood pic

Timberlake Finds Trouble With The Curve

Justin Timberlake is sticking with his plan to jump between comedy and drama (even as his music career cries into its pillow because he hasn’t talked to it for months), scoring a starring role alongside Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams in Trouble With The Curve.

The film sees Eastwood as a veteran baseball scout whose health, and particularly his vision, is beginning to fail him. He departs on one last scouting trip to look for a potential new star of the sport and decides that the journey might make for a good chance to reconnect with his daughter.

Timberlake will play a former pitcher-turned-scout, who is competing against Eastwood’s character for the new signing. But he also falls for Adams. There’s a healthy idea: annoy Clint Eastwood!

Robert Lorenz, Eastwood’s regular producing partner, is in the director’s chair for the movie, scripted by Randy Brown. We’ve no idea what this new piece of casting might mean for Matthew Lillard, who was also up for a role as a fellow scout.  Still, there’s likely room for everyone, including Joe Massingill, the newcomer who was cast around the same time as Lillard.

Curve is currently set for release on September 28 in the US, though there’s no word yet on a UK date. Timberlake is also set to co-star with Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac in the Coens' Inside Llewyn Davis.

Timberlake!
In my opinion JT can do no wrong (not John Terry). This sounds like a great sporting film and with Clint directing, I have very high hope for this. More
