Brad Pitt Plays Some Moneyball

Steve Zaillian (“Braveheard”) has signed on to adapt Michael Lewis’ nonfiction bestseller “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” for Sony Pictures reports Variety.

The film will follow Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane, who assembled a contending baseball club on a shoestring budget by employing a sophisticated computer-based analysis to draft players.

David Frankel is attached to direct the project which is being lined up as a potential starring vehicle for Brad Pitt. Michael De Luca and Rachael Horovitz are producing.
