Sorkin on Moneyball

07.09.2009

Aaron Sorkin When Sony head Amy Pascal shut down production on MONEYBALL, the Michael Lewis adapted biopic on Oakland A's manager Billy Beane and his unconventional approach to managing, claiming that Steven Soderbergh had radically changed Steve Zallian's original script, there was a question whether they were still committed to the film, especially at the risk of losing its star Brad Pitt. Turns out they're still keen on making the picture as they've recently hired writer extraordinaire Aaron Sorkin to rewrite Zaillian's script. Further, Pitt, despite loyalty to Soderbergh, who has been nixed off the project completely, will stay on to star. Though the film doesn't have TRANSFORMERS sized box office potential, it makes sense Sony would try to make it more commerically viable with somebody as adept in doing so as Sorkin, especially since he just scripted what's thought to be a fantastic script for the so-called Facebook movie THE SOCIAL NETWORK.

Extra Tidbit: That's a Joker-sized smile Sorkin has there.

Losing Soderbergh isn't necessarily a bad thing - he is an interesting filmmaker, but for every time he improves a script (for example, The Limey) there's a time when he makes something woeful (The Girlfriend Experience). Besides, a Sorkin rewrite is very exciting (worked for The Rock, after all). Hopefully they won't go the soft route and give it to someone like Ron Shelton.

No offense Sorkin,

but bring back Soderbergh, as he makes challenging and interesting movies, and I am afraid the studio will turn it into some Hollywood-ize junk.
