There was a sad sigh of disappointment that could be heard around the entire world three years ago when living legend of the big screen, Clint Eastwood revealed he was retiring from acting. Clint said he wanted to spend more time behind the camera rather than in front of it.
At the time the Eastwood explained, "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. I don't know, I never say never.” Thankful he hasn’t said never.
81 year old Clint Eastwood is reportedly taking a serious look at the script Trouble With The Curve, which has been written by Randy Brown. The movie is also due to be directed by Robert Lorenz, who has worked with Clint in the past on Mystic River and Blood Work.
Trouble With The Curve centres around an ageing baseball coach who is beginning to lose his eyesight. The coach sets off with his daughter on one last journey to cast his waning eyes over a highly rated prospect. Obviously Eastwood would be playing the baseball coach.
If Clint Eastwood accepts the role, it will be the first time that he has appeared in somebody else’s movie since he starred in the 1993 movie In the Line of Fire, which was directed by Wolfgang Petersen. Let’s hope that Clint Eastwood does what the world over is hoping and takes one last role in front of the camera.
