Moneyball, the film based on Michael Lewis’ book about baseball statistics and management that Steven Soderbergh left last year, is apparently still moving forward at Sony.
However, according to The Playlist, Demetri Martin, who was attached since the film’s early days, is now set to be replaced by Jonah Hill.
The Playlist further says there are ideas being thrown around to give the film a romantic comedy or bromance angle.
After Soderbergh left the project, which still has Brad Pitt attached, Aaron Sorkin came on board to do a rewrite. Bennett Miller, who took the vacant director’s seat in December, is still on hand, according to sources who spoke to The Playlist.
