First Image of Brad Pitt on the Set of MONEYBALL

     July 21, 2010

There was a point when it looked like Moneyball — the adaptation of the Michael Lewis baseball book led by Brad Pitt — might not make it.  Thus, let us celebrate this physical evidence that Bennett Miller (Capote) is helming the Los Angeles shoot as we speak.  Though there is not yet photographic proof, Robin Wright, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stephen Bishop, Kathryn Morris, and Chris Pratt also star in the film.  Hit the jump to see the image in full.

Here’s a plot synopsis:

Based on Michael Lewis’ nonfiction book, [the] story centers on the 2002 Oakland Athletics, who were led by general manager Billy Beane (Pitt) to an excellent season despite having the lowest payroll in the Major Leagues.  Hoffman [plays] team manager Art Howe, who frequently clashed with Beane over strategic decisions.

I can’t think of any headwear in particular that wouldn’t look great atop Mr. Pitt’s beautiful head, but I’m glad we can cross “visor” off the list of candidates.
