CBS Buys Legal Drama From ‘Trouble With The Curve’ Writer, Producer Bill Gerber

15 October 2012 3:40 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: CBS has put in development Last Stop Savannah. The drama project is written by Randy Brown, who penned the most recent Clint Eastwood-starring movie Trouble With The Curve, and executive produced by Bill Gerber, who produced Eastwood’s previous starring vehicle Gran Torino. Last Stop Savannah, from Warner Bros TV and studio-based Gerber Pictures, centers on a high-profile Chicago attorney who suffers a fall from grace and loses his Illinois license. He returns to his hometown of Savannah for a job at his old college roommate’s firm — where his daughter works as a newly minted partner. Brown, who will co-executive produce, and Gerber are with UTA. This is the second TV project for Gerber Pictures this season, along with an adaptation of comic Midnight, Mass. at NBC. On the feature side, the Gerber-produced Grudge Match starring Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone and Kevin Hart just received a green light by Warner Bros. »

It's Rocky Balboa vs Jake Lamotta in Grudge Match

15 October 2012 12:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I'm not quite sure if this is one of the greatest ideas of all-time or one of the worst, but Deadline has revealed that Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) and Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) are to square off against each other in Grudge Match, a film about two retired brawlers who are tempted by a fight promoter to get back in the ring for one last bout.

Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man) will play the fight promoter, who presumably faces a grueling fight of his own in order to persuade an athletic commission to license a fight between the two aging boxers (perhaps it's being sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation).

Grudge Match has been scripted by Tim Kelleher (The Arsenio Hall Show) with rewrites from Doug Ellin (Entourage), and is set to be directed by Peter Segal (Get Smart). The project has been in development since 2010 and has now »

Bill Moseley Discusses Chiller Channel's Dead Souls, Airing Friday, October 12

11 October 2012 12:20 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There are no fools working at Chiller's offices. Nary a one. They all know if you want to generate interest for your original feature films, you need big name actors. And who's better to fill that role than the legendary Bill Moseley?

He recently sat down and discussed his upcoming role in the Chiller original film, Dead Souls.

Dead Souls airs Friday, October 12th at 9:00 p.m. on Chiller. Check out Chillertv.com for more info.

Moseley talked about what drew him to the film. "Dead Souls is cool because it's one of the things that I love to do and don’t really do very much of and that is supernatural films," Moseley said. "The book by Michael Laimo and John Doolan’s script were very, very cool. It’s a supernatural thriller, it’s a whodunit in a way but there certainly are horrific elements. The farm »

Review: Trouble With The Curve

Trouble With The Curve

Review by Dan Clark

Stars: Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, John Goodman, Robert Patrick, Matthew Lillard, Ed Lauter, Chelcie Ross, Raymond Anthony Thomas, Justin Timberlake | Written by Randy Brown | Directed by Robert Lorenz

We all enjoy the opportunity to be comfortable. It brings a warm sensation as we relax from our busy day to feel at ease for a brief moment. Sometimes movies are capable of providing us that brief moment of escape. They present a certain story or plotline that isn’t challenging and easy to follow. You aren’t required to think yet you still remain entertained. It’s as relaxing as a Saturday afternoon nap where we recharge our batteries before returning to the cruel cynical world. When watching director’s Robert Lorenz’s film Trouble with the Curve I was placed in the ultimate state of comfort. The story is formulaic and never »

Photo Finish in Slow Race to the Top This Weekend

23 September 2012 12:34 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's one of the tightest races ever for first place at the box office this weekend, though all three movies in contention had fairly mediocre debuts.According to studio estimates, House at the End of The Street and End of Watch are tied with $13 million, while Trouble with the Curve isn't far behind and could ultimately move up to the top spot. Without any break-out hit, the Top 12 earned an estimated $76.6 million this weekend, which is off a whopping 28 percent from the same frame last year.End of Watch's $13 million start is par-for-the-course for cop movies, as it fits right in between writer-director David Ayer's Street Kings ($12.5 million) and 2010's Brooklyn's Finest ($13.4 million). Unfortunately, both of those titles wound up with less than $28 million, which would be a disappointing final total for End of Watch (it's "A-" CinemaScore suggests it could push past this level).

Box Office: Jennifer Lawrence, Jake Gyllenhaal Duel to Tie; Dredd 3D Bombs

23 September 2012 10:38 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The box-office weekend's ultimate winner may not be determined until Monday, but the big loser seems pretty clear right now. Sunday estimates show Jennifer Lawrence's House at the End of the Street and Jake Gyllenhaal's End of Watch in a tie, with both new releases scoring $13 million. Dredd 3D, the critically acclaimed new take on Judge Dredd, flopped, opening with just $6.3 million. Clint Eastwood's new entry, Trouble With the Curve, his first on-screen work since Gran Torino, or the Republican National Convention, depending on your perspective, came away with $12.7 million—a "decent" performance, as Exhibitor Relations' Jeff Bock put it. No wide-release movie, »

Weekend Box Office: 'Trouble With The Curve,' 'End Of The Street' & 'End Of Watch' Battle For #1

23 September 2012 9:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Update: THR reports that "End Of Watch" has wound up winning the weekend, edging out "Trouble With The Curve" and "The House At The End Of The Street." If you bet any money on this weekend’s box office, you'll have to wait on Monday’s actuals, because this is a tight race between three new releases jockeying for the top spot with lukewarm grosses. Also, maybe see someone for your gambling problem. Expectations were a bit higher for Clint Eastwood’s "Trouble with the Curve," given that the baseball postseason nears and because of Eastwood’s increased visibility in the wake of the Republican National Convention. Stronger earlier results were shown for “Gran Torino” and “Million Dollar Baby,” but both those films weren't following a movie like last year’s “Moneyball," which stood out for having a significantly stronger pedigree, including “Capote” »

Trouble With The Curve UK Poster

23 September 2012 5:10 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Here’s the UK version of the one-sheet poster for Robert Lorenz’s tale titled Trouble With The Curve, thanks to HeyUGuys.

Clint Eastwood’s latest and possibly last starring vehicle is box-office disappointment at the end of summer and will almost surely earn less on its opening weekend than Gran Torino earned on its seventh weekend out.

However, starring the legend who hasn’t been before the cameras since Torino, alongside Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman, the film hit theaters in the UK on November 30th, 2012.

Chicago Tribune said in its review as Twtc has the Curve’s premiere Wednesday night in Us:

Of course the movie is sentimental. A fairy tale? Yes, it’s that too. Satisfying? Yep. The key, I think, is the restaurant scene between Adams and Eastwood where she confronts him about how she was, and wasn’t, raised by Gus. It’s »

What’s #1? Clint Eastwood’s Baseball Film? Or Jennifer Lawrence’s Horror House? Or Jake Gyllenhaal’s Cop Drama? ‘Dredd’ Dead

23 September 2012 1:38 AM, PDT | Deadline Hollywood | See recent Deadline Hollywood news »

Saturday Pm/Sunday Am: This is one of those weekends which can only be described as box office hell for me. Because the three top pics are neck-and-neck for #1 this weekend. Final film order may come down to Sunday late shows on the West Coast. All four newcomers are low- to medium-budget movies, but none opened to more than $14M this weekend. And total filmgoing likely won’t add up to a lot more than $87M, which is down a big -20% from last year. “It’s a close race to mediocrity with no winners,” one movie exec snarked to me. Warner Bros is claiming Clint Eastwood’s baseball father-daughter melodrama Trouble With The Curve (3,212 theaters) is #1 this weekend. Not so fast. My sources already were calling it a “big disappointment” Friday. But it received a +32% Red State bump on Saturday to make it more competitive. A lot of uninformed »

Baseball Flick Trouble With The Curve to Become One of Eastwood's Weakest Performers (Rnc Speech Most Likely Not to Blame)

22 September 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Clint Eastwood Trouble with the Curve box office: Disappointing debut Four new releases, four box-office disappointments as the end of summer / early fall blues at the North American box office continue unabated. (More details on my follow-up post.) Particularly disappointing was the box-office reception of Eastwood's "family flick" Trouble with the Curve, which opened at no. 3 on Friday with an anemic $4.16m at 3,212 locations according to studio estimates found at the web site Box Office Mojo. Early predictions had the 82-year-old Eastwood's latest and possibly last starring vehicle grossing around $18 million to 20 million by Sunday evening. With a whole lot of luck, Trouble will reach $15 million, though $12 million to 13 million -- i.e., at most a mediocre $4,300 or so per venue -- seems much more likely at this stage. If so, that'll place Trouble on a similar level to that of Eastwood's other major underperformers in the last three decades »

Friday Report: Three Middling Movies Compete for First Place

22 September 2012 11:30 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

House at the End of The Street, End of Watch and Trouble with the Curve were all in a heated race for first place on Friday, though none of them were very impressive. At least they all did better than Dredd, which is looking like a major misfire at this point.House at the End of the Street narrowly took the top spot on Friday with an estimated $4.64 million from 3,083 locations. That's noticeably higher than recent "House" horror movies Silent House ($2.66 million) and Dream House ($2.89 million), but still on the low end for horror movies in general. For example, that gross is a bit behind that of September 2010's Devil ($4.8 million), which was considered a disappointment at the time. The Jennifer Lawrence movie is on pace for between $12 and $13 million for the weekend.End of Watch wasn't far behind with an estimated $4.6 million from 2,730 theaters. That's about on par with »

Trouble With The Curve press conference with Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake and director Robert Lorenz.

21 September 2012 11:14 PM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Years after Clint Eastwood said he was going to retire from acting after the release of Gran Torino in 2008, the iconic star is back as a grizzled baseball scout with failing eyesight in “Trouble with the Curve.” “After ‘Gran Torino’ I kind of thought it was kind of stupid do be doing both jobs,” said Eastwood, whose last film he acted for another director was “In the Line of Fire” nearly 20 years ago. “I’ve only been doing it for 40-some years. I thought maybe I should do one or the other and allow myself a little bit of comfort zone.” Eastwood added, “When all these guys were working I was practicing putting or something. It’s a great and relaxing thing and I probably won’t do both again at least for the moment. But I said I wasn’t going to act again a few years ago and that changed to. »
