Also starring Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake, The Trouble with the Curve casts Clint as Gus Lobel, one of the best scouts in baseball. But age is starting to catch up with him, and he refuses to be benched for the final innings of his career. When the Atlanta Braves front office starts to question his judgment, he reluctantly recruits his estranged attorney daughter Mickey (Adams) to be his eyes – forcing the two to reconcile and make new discoveries that could change their future. Timberlake plays Johnny Flanagan, a rival scout who has his sights on a career in the announcer's booth -- and romance with Mickey.
The Trouble with the Curve marks the feature film directorial debut of Eastwood's longtime producing partner, Robert Lorenz, and also stars John Goodman, Robert Patrick, Matthew Lillard, newcomer Joe Massingill and Clint's son Scott Eastwood.
