From Steve Zaillian, writer of “Schindler’s List,” and Steven Soderbergh, director of “Traffic,” comes Michael Lewis’ Moneyball.
Starring Brad Pitt as Billy Beane.
Now, granted, only Zaillian is officially signed on. And we don’t know that Pitt’s going for the Beane role (although it seems like a safe bet), but this is some serious OMG news.
I hope DePodesta, who Alderson doesn’t expect to follow him out the door, mentions something about this on his blog. Hopefully he can give us a casting scoop on who’s going to play him.
