Justin Timberlake is taking his acting career pretty seriously. His next role will be alongside Clint Eastwood in a baseball movie.
According to Variety, Timberlate is set to join Eastwood along with Amy Adams in Trouble With The Curve. The film will be the first for Robert Lorenz who is set to direct from a script by Randy Brown. Eastwood and Lorenz will be producing. This marks Eastwood’s first time starring but not directing since he did In the Line of Fire in 1993 with Wolfgang Petersen.
Trouble has Eastwood staring as a baseball scout for the New York Yankees. His age and eye problems means he’s on the way out, but he takes one more trip to Atlanta with his daughter to look at a prospect.
Timberlake would play Johnny Flanagan, a friend of Eastwood’s and a former pitcher who is also a scout for the Yankees. The character could be a potential love interest for Eastwood’s daughter played by Adams.
