Brad Pitt’s Movie is Being Shut Down Before Filming
Just days before the production starts, Brad Pitt’s latest movie titled Moneyball has been benched out by Columbia Pictures.
According to an inside source, the $50-million-plus baseball drama that is planned to be directed by Steven Soderbergh was being pulled late last week after Soderbergh turned in a rewritten script substantially different than an earlier draft by screenwriter Steven Zaillian.
Studio head, Amy Pascal, was the one who shuts down the project, although she gave Soderbergh the opportunity to set the project up at a different studio. Meanwhile, Soderbergh’s manager declined to comment.
The script is based on Michael Lewis’s nonfiction book about Oakland Athletics’s general manager Billy Beane, who put together a star Major League team despite a lack of a major bank account. The script was by Ocean‘s series director Soderbergh, and screenwriter Steven Zaillian. The latest Moneyball script draft wasn’t even a week old.
Hopefully there’s a light in the end of this ‘changed script’ tunnel. But if there won’t be any, I think Pitt doesn’t have to worry. I’m sure lots of other movies waiting to be starred by him. Well, what can I say? Other than his good looking and great acting, Pitt is the box office machine!
