TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE

ROBERT LORENZ (Director/Producer) continues his progression as a filmmaker making his feature directorial debut with "Trouble with the Curve." Already a prolific producer, Lorenz has earned two Academy Award nominations in the last decade producing films for Clint Eastwood at his Malpaso Productions.

Lorenz received his first Oscar nomination in 2004 for producing "Mystic River." The following year he served as executive producer on the Best Picture winner "Million Dollar Baby." Lorenz went on to produce Eastwood's World War II companion pieces, "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima." The latter, which he produced along with Eastwood and Steven Spielberg, brought Lorenz his second Academy Award nomination. Shot almost entirely in Japanese, "Letters from Iwo Jima" also won the Los Angeles Film Critics and National Board of Review Awards for Best Picture, as well as the Golden Globe and Critics Choice Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.

In 2008, Lorenz worked with Brian Grazer and Ron Howard to produce Eastwood's true-life drama "Changeling," which went on to receive three Academy Award nominations, including one for Angelina Jolie as Best Actress. The same year, Lorenz and Eastwood produced "Gran Torino," Malpaso's highest grossing film to date.

Lorenz most recently produced Eastwood's "J. Edgar," with Leonardo DiCaprio; "Hereafter," starring Matt Damon; and "Invictus," which earned a Producers Guild of America Award nomination. Starring Damon and Morgan Freeman in Oscar -nominated performances, the film received Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Picture and Director.

Lorenz grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and moved to Los Angeles to start his film career in 1989. He began his association with Eastwood as an assistant director on "The Bridges of Madison County." Their subsequent collaborations include "Space Cowboys," "True Crime," "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," "Absolute Power" and "Blood Work."
