Fox picked this up. Some hilarious commentary that I found regarding this announcement:

"Hmm. I'm curious to see how Fox is going to work in the explosions, CGI, and sex. "
"They brought in Michael Bay to direct. And Nick Swisher will now be played by a 40-foot-tall CGI robot. "
"does he have a sex scene with Megan Fox? "
"Close. Jose Mesa's wife. "
"Although there is a scene where Alyssa Milano humps Jake Peavy's leg until he shakes her off. "

Interesting read on the script for the movie and why production got halted.

Who is this Soderbergh retard anyway?

A Tarantino Moneyball would be entertaining. ;-)

This just won't die.............

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/dodgerthoughts/2009/07/moneyball-movie-is-back-on.html

Sony is still game on making the baseball pic "Moneyball," tapping Aaron Sorkin to polish an early script by Steve Zaillian.

Brad Pitt is still attached to star in Columbia Pictures' adaptation of Michael Lewis' nonfiction bestseller "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game,"


;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D


And then, even better.........

Steven Soderbergh will no longer direct the pic.


:-D B-) :-D

I just realized that Demetri Martin is supposed to be De Podesta. That is an interesting choice. :-?

Columbia is sending Aaron Sorkin to the plate to take a new cut at "Moneyball."

The writer has been brought on to do a draft of the baseball drama, drawing on Steve Zaillian's earlier take. The studio wants to move forward quickly with the new iteration, with Sorkin set to turn in his version as soon as next month.

Brad Pitt remains on board to star, but Steven Soderbergh no longer will write or direct and is not involved in the film.

Anyone else think a movie about making the Moneyball movie would great. :-D

As long as Soderbergh is played by that Spencer Whathisface douche or someone equally douche-y.

Do you know how to work excel? :-* :-* :-* %-6
