Eastwood’s ‘Curve’ slides up a week

Sept. 21 date comes two weeks before MLB playoffs

Warner Bros. has moved Clint Eastwood’s next film, “Trouble With the Curve,” up a week to Sept. 21.

Story centers on an aging baseball scout, to be played by Eastwood, who’s losing his sight and decides to take a road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to check out a hot prospect. Amy Adams will portray the daughter and Robert Lorenz, Eastwood’s Malpaso partner, will make his directorial debut, with Malpaso producing.

Curve” will open two weeks before the Major League Baseball playoffs start on Oct. 5. Sony opted for a similar late-September opening slot for its MLB-themed “Moneyball” last fall.

“Curve” had been set to open Sept. 28 against Sony’s sci-fier “Looper” and its “Hotel Transylvania” along with Fox’s drama “Won’t Back Down.” By moving up a week, it will face competition from the launches of Relativity’s “House at the End of the Street,” Open Road’s “End of Watch” and Liongate’s “Dredd.”
