Legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood, whose vast career spans over 50 years, isn't quite ready to hang up his acting hat yet.

Eastwood, 82, is set to appear in the 2012 film "Trouble with the Curve" according to Entertainment Weekly. The actor, who is stepping out of a three-year retirement, was rumored to have been done with acting after his 2008 film "Gran Torino."

The film, set to star Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams, tells the story of an ailing baseball scout in his twilight years who takes his daughter along for one last recruiting trip. The film is set to premiere in September 2012.

Eastwood is known for directing films such as "Mystic River," "Million Dollar Baby," "Invictus," "Hereafter" and "J. Edgar." He has starred in films like "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," "Dirty Harry" and "Million Dollar Baby."

Eastwood's wife Dina stars in an MTV reality show that chronicles their unique family's lives, from her managing a boy-band to her daughter's tumultuous relationship. The show, however, does not regularly feature Clint Eastwood.

"It's about absolute respect for him... and his image, and not wanting to touch that," Dina said of her husband's sparse appearance on the series in May 2012. "Clint graciously threw me a bone and decided to appear in a couple of episodes. Other times I'd want him to appear and he'd say, 'Nope, I don't want to.'"
