JUSTIN Timberlake is joining the Clint Eastwood-Amy Adams baseball drama, Trouble With The Curve.

The road trip movie, which marks Eastwood’s latest return to acting, focuses on an aging baseball scout who goes on a final talent search with his daughter (Adams) in tow as a means of trying to save his relationship with her.

She is a rising attorney who is on the verge of being promoted to partner.

Timberlake has signed up to play a young scout who, according to The Hollywood Reporter, may also be Adams’ love interest.

The Warner Bros. drama will mark the directorial debut of Eastwood’s long-time producing partner Robert Lorenz and a March start date in Atlanta is being eyed with a view to having the film completed for a September 28 US release date.

Timberlake’s presence continues the former singer’s high profile crossover into acting, which has thus far hit highs with The Social Network and Friends With Benefits and the occasional low with In Time
