Steve Zaillian has signed on to adapt Michael Lewis’ nonfiction bestseller "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game," and David Frankel is attached to direct. Project is being developed as a potential starring vehicle for Brad Pitt.Moneyball is an amazing book, hands down one of the best sports books I've ever read. I'd suggest that, in the NHL's capped environment, it's a must read for hockey fans, even those who hate baseball. But a movie?
In the Hollywood version Billy Beane will draft either a super talented chimp or an irascible golden retriever and Angelina Jolie will be cast as Jeremy Brown. (I kid. I kid. Zaillan penned American Gangster, which was a pretty great movie.)
