I love most baseball movies — even the silly, really bad ones, like “Little Big League.”
In other words, not hard to please on this front.
So, I have no doubt “Moneyball,” the story of how A’s GM Billy Beane revolutionized the front-office game to keep small-market teams competitive in this era of bloated salaries, will be met with my approval.
I have decided this after seeing a 150-second trailer, released for the first time today.
“Moneyball,” directed by Bennett Miller (after two other directors, including Steven Soderbergh, quit the project) and starring Brad Pitt (as Beane) and Jonah Hill, is scheduled to open Sept. 23.
It’s been in the works since 2008.
