Director Clint Eastwood is reportedly set to return to acting in a new baseball movie "Trouble with the Curve", despite insisting 2008's "Gran Torino" was his last time in front of the camera.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 81-year-old is planning to play a baseball scout who goes on a trip with his adult daughter.

His longtime producing partner Robert Lorenz is set to make his directorial debut through the movie.
