Some films never make it out of development. Others squeak by, after changing hands, to become a film such as ¿Moneyball,¿ which went through director David Frankel and then Steven Soderbergh before landing in the hands of Bennett Miller (¿Capote¿). Brad Pitt plays Oakland A¿s general manager Billy Beane, who trusted in 'sabermetrics' to turn a modestly budgeted ballclub into a winning modestly budgeted ballclub. Jonah Hill, Robin Wright and Philip Seymour Hoffman costar.
