Eastwood pitches ‘Curve’ to Amy Adams

Thesp offered lead role in Warner Bros. baseball pic

Clint Eastwood’s next co-star looks to be Amy Adams, who has been offered the role of his estranged daughter by Warner Bros. in “Trouble With The Curve.”

Robert Lorenz, Eastwood’s Malpaso partner, is in talks to make his directorial debut with the Warner Bros. pic written by Randy Brown.

Story centers on Eastwood’s character, an aging baseball scout who’s losing his sight and decides to take a road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to check out a hot prospect. Malpaso will produce.

Michele Weissler, who brought the project to Malpaso, will also have some producing duties.

The studio was waiting for Eastwood’s deal to close before looking for the female lead, but sources say that Sandra Bullock and Adams were being eyed from the beginning.

Bullock’s schedule is full, so the studio focused on Adams, but her schedule also looks busy.

Adams can be seen next in Disney’s “The Muppets,” which bows Nov. 23, and she is currently filming WB’s “Man of Steel.”

She is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment.
