BRAD PITT

We’ve posted about THIS on multiple occassions. Get ready for “Moneyball” the movie. DailyVariety is reporting that Steven Sorderbergh is in serious talks with with Columbia Pictures to direct a film based on the Michael Lewis book “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.”

The movie would focus on the book’s subtitle-how the Oakland A’s compete every year with a much smaller payroll than clubs like the New York Yankees. It is scheduled to feature actor Brad Pitt as Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane.

Deadspin.com jokingly added that Joaquin Phoenix was scheduled to play Scott Hatteberg before he went insane. Or maybe they weren’t joking.
