long-gestating, Brad Pitt-starring Moneyball may soon be filling out, with Variety reporting that Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Wright are both in early talks to join the movie, which was adapted by Aaron Sorkin and will be directed by Hoffman’s Capote director Bennett Miller. Based on Michael Lewis’ nonfiction book about stats and baseball, the story follows the 2002 Oakland As and their winning season under GM Billy Beane (Pitt). Jonah Hill is already on board playing stats expert Paul DePodesta. Hoffman is in talks to play manager Art Howe, while Wright is circling the role of Beane’s ex-wife. I find the possibility of Hoffman clashing with Pitt onscreen an almost irresistible combo, and it’d be great to see Wright in a high-profile project.
