This looks good! The first trailer for the long-awaited movie Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, has been released, and we're intrigued!
The flick, based on the true story of Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane's revolutionary method of using baseball statistics to draft his players, hit a few foul balls (get it?) over the past few years in getting made.
In 2009, director Steven Soderbergh (Brad Pitt's director for the Ocean's 11 movies) left the project over issues with his revision of the script, written by Steve Zaillian (Schindler's List, Clear and Present Danger, Gangs of New York).
But The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin was brought on for revisions, and the end product looks awesome! We are loving the contrast between sexy Pitt and funny Hill!
Hill, who is racking up the good-looking co-stars, is in New Orleans shooting the movie version of '80s TV show 21 Jump Street with Channing Tatum.
