Moneyball has been looking like it'd be a pretty strong move for quite awhile. Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts at ESPN Los Angeles (and more famously of Variety) discusses the things he liked the most.
Most interestingly, Weisman believes this movie (just like Sorkin's last notable project The Social Network) will generate serious Oscar potential. Based on this review, you'd figure that the screenplay and an acting nomination for Pitt will be in order. Can it garner the accolades that The Social Network compiled with Best Picture and Best Director (Bennett Miler, the man who directed Capote) garnered?
