Thoughts: So much for retirement. Clint Eastwood had indicated that 2008’s Gran Torino would be his swan song…but it turns out that you really can’t keep a good guy down. Now Eastwood has backtracked a bit and said that he’s not going to be directing himself in films anymore. So when the script for Trouble With the Curve came along he chose the next best thing and put his long time collaborator Robert Lorenz in the director’s chair. I’d be interested to know how much input Clint had on the process because the look and feel of the film is classic Eastwood. Though it does look like a terribly familiar plot with stock characters, assembling a cast this good may make the end result a small victory.
