Clint Eastwood is reportedly in negotiations to star in 'Trouble with the Curve'.

The 81-year-old retired actor is believed to be considering a return to acting to play Reese Witherspoon's father in the movie, which tells the story of an ageing baseball scout who has lost his eyesight but sets out on one last trip with his daughter to watch an upcoming star.

Amy Adams is also thought to be in the running to star in the role Reese is heavily linked with, and Sandra Bullock was previously rumoured but it is thought she has now moved on, according to

Clint - who recently directed 'J. Edgar', which stars Leonardo Dicaprio - previously declared his last acting role would be in 2008 movie 'Gran Torino', but he recently admitted he would consider playing the next James Bond.

The 'Good, the Bad and the Ugly' star explained: "I would act if the right role came along. But I'm not looking to do it because there are not that many great roles that would be something different for me to play, to conquer.

"I don't know, I never say never, like James Bond or something."
