Opening Fall 2011, Moneyball is the story of the Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt). He has an epiphany: all conventional baseball wisdom is wrong. Reinventing his team on a budget, he needs to outsmart the richer teams. Joining with Ivy Leaguer Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), they recruit bargain players whom the scouts consider flawed but who have a knack for getting on base, scoring runs, and winning games. They'll either be the laughing stock of baseball or its vindicated underdogs. A Columbia Pictures release directed by Bennett Miller ( Capote), from the screenplay written by Steven Zaillian ( Gangs of New York) and Aaron Sorkin ( The Social Network), and produced by Michael De Luca ( The Social Network), Rachael Horovitz ( Grey Gardens), and Scott Rudin ( The Social Network).
