Images from the Set of MONEYBALL, Including First Look at Philip Seymour Hoffman in His A’s Uniform

     August 4, 2010


Production on director Bennett Miller’s adaptation of the Michael Lewis baseball book Moneyball last month —  our first look was an image of a visored Brad Pitt, and today we have a slew of photos from the set, including our first glimpse at Philip Seymour Hoffman in costume as Oakland A’s manager Art Howe.  Robin Wright, Jonah Hill, Stephen Bishop, Kathryn Morris, and Chris Pratt also star in the film, set for release sometime in 2011.  Check out the images after the jump.

A brief 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.

These were a few of the more interesting images posted on the film’s Facebook page (via The Playlist), though you may want to check them all out if you find baseball stadiums particularly beautiful.
