‘Moneyball’ to be released next fall

Sony will release the Brad Pitt starrer “Moneyball” on Sept. 23, 2011.

According to Variety, Bennett Miller is directing from a script by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin.

Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca and Rachel Horovitz are producing.

Pitt, Robin Wright, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stephen Bishop and Kathryn Morris star in the film.

The film is based on the bestselling Michael Lewis book about Billy Beane (Pitt), the former baseball player who found success as the Oakland A’s general manager fielding competitive teams for low cost.

It will go up against Lionsgate’s John Singleton thriller “Abduction,” starring Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins, Sigourney Weaver and Maria Bello.
