The newest sports movie to hit the pre-production stage, titled Moneyball, is a story that tracks the Oakland A’s baseball team and its unconventional general manager Billy Beane, played by none other than Brad Pitt.

Beane is infamously known for using computer-generated analysis of statistics to draft players, which brought the A’s organization success both on and off the field.

The script was rewritten by Steven Soderbergh in an attempt to include more authentic scenes. Darryl Strawberry and Lenny Dykstra will both be making appearances in the movie.

The film also stars Jonah Hill, Robin Wright, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. They have begun shooting scenes of real day and night games at the coliseum to include in the movie.
