Brad Pitt is set to return to the big screen with his new movie project Moneyball – which is based on the book of the same name.
Directed by Bennett Miller the movie also stars Jonah Hill, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Robin Wright and the movie is already gaining some momentum and support on the festival circuit.
Pitt stars as Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland As and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball’s conventional wisdom is wrong.
Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games.
It’s more than baseball, it’s a revolution – one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he’s tearing out the heart and soul of the game.
Moneyball is set for a November 25th release – take a look at some clips from the movie:
