Eastwood to star in baseball film

Clint Eastwood is reportedly set to return to acting in a new baseball movie, despite insisting 2008’s Gran Torino was his last time in front of the camera.

The movie legend insisted he had finished with acting so he could concentrate on directing, and would only come out of retirement if the perfect script came along.

But after his remake of A Star Is Born was postponed due to its lead Beyonce falling pregnant, Eastwood has decided to fill his time with a new role.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Eastwood is planning to play a baseball scout who goes on a trip with his adult daughter in Trouble with the Curve.

His longtime producing partner Robert Lorenz is set to make his directorial debut on the movie.
