Actor Brad Pitt’s stalled baseball movie, Moneyball is now back on, with director Bennett Miller believed to be ready to direct the film. Miller, 42, is in talks to direct the Sony Pictures film, which filmmaker Steven Soderbergh quit over script issues this summer, reports Contactmusic.
The film is based on Michael Lewis’ book by the same name, and it chronicles the life of Billy Beane, general manager of the baseball team, Oakland A’s. Beane had turned the lowly squad into winners thanks to an unorthodox method of hiring stars.
Pitt, 45, has been part of the project for over a year.
