The last time Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood stepped in front of the camera was in the highly-acclaimed 2008 drama Gran Torino — which Eastwood also directed — and it seemed for a long time that the role might be his very last as an actor. Eastwood famously commented that Gran Torino "will probably do it" for him, at least "as far as acting is concerned," saying that he didn't "want to be like a fighter who stays in the ring too long."
Eastwood qualified these statements when we caught up with him at an event in L.A. a couple of years ago, saying that he would "only act again if something good came along," and, thankfully, something good did come along in the form of the baseball drama Trouble with the Curve. In the movie, directed by Eastwood's long-time producer partner, Robert Lorenz, Eastwood once again steps in front of the camera to play Gus, an aging Atlanta Braves scout whose poor eyesight prompts him to enlist his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), to be his eyes for him. more about Trouble With the Curve >> Posted 08.10.12 by BrentJS
After a couple first-look photos rounded the bases last month for the upcoming baseball drama Trouble with the Curve, the first trailer has stepped up to the plate and arrived online (now that that's out of our system, we promise no more baseball puns).
Trouble With the Curve stars Clint Eastwood as an aging Atlanta Braves baseball scout who takes his estranged daughter Mickey (Amy Adams) on a scouting trip to check out a hot new prospect. Picking up where he left off on Gran Torino, Eastwood again plays an angry yet charming man forced to reconcile his past, which included alienating Mickey. Not to worry about the movie being too heavy though, as Justin Timberlake is on hand to play a quippy, rival scout who befriends Gus, even while he has his eye on Mickey. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.08.12 by Ryan
Clint Eastwood is back. To acting, anyway. Or, to be more precise, to acting and not directing. For the first time since 1993's In the Line of Fire, Eastwood is not behind the camera (though he is producing) but in front of the camera for the baseball scout drama Trouble with the Curve. Instead, the directing duties are being handled by first-time helmer Robert Lorenz, Eastwood's longtime producing partner. Trouble With the Curve stars Eastwood as an aging Atlanta Braves scout with vision problems named Gus, who recruits his daughter Mickey (Amy Adams) to be his eyes for a recruiting trip.
"He gets his chance to prove whether he still has value as a scout—and as a dad," Lorenz told Entertainment Weekly. "They’re having trouble communicating. They always have, and now they’ve come to a point in the relationship where it’s either going to change or it’s not. He needs a little help, and she decides it’s worth the effort." EW has also released some first-look photos from the project, which co-stars Justin Timberlake as a rival scout who respects Gus, and soon finds that he has feelings for his daughter as well. check out the photos >> Posted 07.27.12 by Ryan
Will Ferrell's next two roles will see him play rancher Armando Alvarez in the telenovela parody Casa de Mi Padre (opening March 16) and then North Carolina politician Cam Brady in the political comedy Dog Fight (opening Aug. 10th), but his next role will see him play a man who steals flamingos.
Variety reports that Ferrell is attached to star in Flamingo Thief, based on the 2010 novel of the same name by Susan Trott. Ferrell will play lawyer Tim Forrester, who, after his wife leaves him, becomes obsessed with stealing flamingo figurines.
No director is currently attached though the search has just begun. Ben Stiller will produce through his Red Hour production company, and Michael LeSieur (You, Me and Dupree) will adapt the screenplay. Evil Dead claims another victim; Eastwood teams with Eastwood >> Posted 02.12.12 by Ryan
Despite appearances in movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Live Free or Die Hard, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead has never strayed too far from her horror roots, which started with 2006's Final Destination 3 and Black Christmas and continued to last year's The Thing. For Winstead's latest journey into the genre, she will team with The Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm for The Darkness.
Written by Megan Holley (Sunshine Cleaning) and loosely based on Henry James' classic novel Turn of the Screw, The Darkness will follow Winstead as a young American student who looks after young children in a British manor and is convinced they are the victims of a haunting.
Screen Daily reports that The Darkness will start shooting in Europe this summer and that British distributor HanWay Films has already agreed to release the movie internationally. "We were blown away by The Last Exorcism," said HanWay managing director Thorsten Schumacher. "Given the recent box office success of the ghost movie genre in attracting the sought after younger audience, the timing is perfect to bring this haunting thriller to the marketplace." goodman pairs with eastwood; alexander plots to kill >> Posted 02.09.12 by Ryan
Since appearing as Sean Parker in the 2010 Facebook drama The Social Network, Justin Timberlake's acting career has been on the rise (we'll ignore providing the voice of Boo-Boo in Yogi Bear for the sake of argument). With Timberlake set to appear in Joel and Ethan Coen's upcoming musical Inside Llewyn Davis to start the year, the singer/actor will follow that with the baseball scout drama Trouble with the Curve, which will put him opposite Clint Eastwood.
The movie will be the first Eastwood has only acted in since 1993's In the Line of Fire, and will see him playing an aging baseball scout who embarks on a working road trip to Atlanta with his daughter (Amy Adams), a rising attorney. THR reports that Timberlake has been cast as a young scout who may be Adams' love interest.
Robert Lorenz, Eastwood's longtime producing partner, will direct Trouble With the Curve, which is set to start production in Atlanta this March. Matthew Lillard (The Descendants) was recently cast as a fellow scout. swift out of Les Mis >> Posted 02.01.12 by Ryan
Earlier this month, Matthew Fox (Lost) was cast in the upcoming political thriller Emperor. Set at the end of World War II, Fox will play Gen. Bonner Fellers, one of General Douglas MacArthur's leading Japanese experts during a time when MacArthur was temporarily in charge as the de facto ruler of Japan as supreme commander of the occupying forces. Fellers struggles with the decision whether Emperor Hirohito should be tried and hanged as a war criminal, while also searching for his lost love, a Japanese exchange student he had met years before in the U.S.
With Fox set for the lead role, it was only a matter of time before an actor was cast to play Gen. MacArthur, and, according to ComingSoon, director Peter Webber (Hannibal Rising, Girl With a Pearl Earring) has decided on Tommy Lee Jones for the role. "Tommy will bring strength, intelligence, and gravitas to the portrayal of General Douglas MacArthur, a legendary American hero," said producer Gary Foster (Ghost Rider).
Emperor was written by David Klass (Walking Tall) and Vera Blasi (Tortilla Soup), and starts shooting later this month in New Zealand and Japan. more actors board the Snow Piercer train, Mattew Lillard and Clint Eastwood? >> Posted 01.18.12 by Ryan
