The movie adaptation of “Moneyball,” Michael Lewis’ must-read book about the Oakland A’s changes to player evaluation in baseball, is back on course, with shooting set to resume this summer. Brad Pitt will play Oakland general manager Billy Beane, though there is one major casting change. The role of Paul DePodesta, the Harvard-educated statistician pictured above, will be played not by Demetri Martin, but by Jonah Hill.
