“The Social Network” really did wonders for former boybander Justin Timberlake’s image as a serious actor. Look at him now, just two years later, starring opposite heavyweights Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams in what could be another serious prestige film during another Oscar season. In “Trouble with the Curve”, Eastwood plays an aging baseball scout, reluctant to give up his life’s work, while Adams is his daughter who would like to take over the family business and maybe finally get to spend time with her absent father in the meantime. In a refreshing change of pace, Timberlake appears to take on a secondary love interest/support role to Adams, who clearly gets the emotional journey here (hey, it would have been just as easy – and more predictable – for Eastwood’s character to have a son rather than a daughter).
Eastwood came out of semi-retirement to act in his longtime producing partner Robert Lorenz’s directorial debut. “Trouble with the Curve” will be released on September 28th, and the first trailer can be viewed below.

Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams go for some unabashed old fashioned romance in our first look at the filming of baseball/family drama “The Trouble With the Curve.” Clint Eastwood stars as an aging, sight impaired baseball scout who travels with his daughter (Adams) to Atlanta to check out a hot new prospect. Timberlake plays Johnny Flanagan, a former ball player turned scout for the Yankees. Eastwood’s longtime producing partner Robert Lorenz is making his directorial debut on this film, currently shooting in Atlanta. “Trouble with the Curve” already has an Oscar-friendly release date of September 28th.
Pop culture site ONTD posted the first pictures of Timberlake and Adams doing a little dancing in the street in the middle of the night. Check out a few set photos below and head over ther for more.

Proving nepotism isn’t always rife in Hollywood, Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, is joining his Hollywood legend father in “Trouble With The Curve” after auditioning for the role.
The sports flick, also starring Justin Timberlake, features elder Eastwood as an aging, sight impaired baseball scout who travels with his daughter (to be played by Amy Adams) to Atlanta to check out a hot new prospect. Younger Eastwood is to play Billy Clark, “a slumping minor league player who the the protag discovered and still has faith in”.
Eastwood’s first role was in his father’s film “Flags Of Our Fathers”, and has also starred in several others. Last seen in horror film “Enter Nowhere”, in 2012 Eastwood will have several releases – drama “Carmel” with Josh Hutchinson, another sports drama “Of Men and Mavericks” with Gerald Butler, and then filming will begin soon for “Trouble With The Curve” since Warner Bros have already set a release date of September 28.
