“The Social Network” star Justin Timberlake is set to join Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams in Warner Bros.’ “Trouble With the Curve,” which will mark the directorial debut of Eastwood’s longtime producing partner Robert Lorenz.

Randy Brown wrote the script, which finds Eastwood playing an aging baseball scout with vision problems who takes a road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to take a look at a hot prospect.

Timberlake will play Eastwood’s pal Johnny Flanagan, a former pitcher who now works as a baseball scout for the New York Yankees. His character is a potential love interest for Adams, who plays Eastwood’s daughter.

Eastwood and Lorenz will produce through their Malpaso banner, while Michele Weissler will also be involved in a producer capacity, having who brought the project to Malpaso. Sarah Schechter will oversee the project for WB.

“Curve” will mark the first film Eastwood has starred in but did not direct since Wolfgang Petersen’s 1993 thriller “In the Line of Fire.”

Timberlake, who recently starred in “Bad Teacher,” “In Time” and “Friends With Benefits,” will soon begin filming the Coen Bros.’ folk music pic “Inside Llewyn Davis” with love interest Carey Mulligan and star Oscar Isaac.

Timberlake is repped by WME, attorney P.J. Shapiro and managers Jennifer Killoran and Rick Yorn.
