    TIFF: Moneyball Review Round-Up

    The movie I was most looking forward to seeing at Toronto, based on the source material (Michael Lewis's baseball Oakland As expose) and talent involved (Bennett Miller directing a script by Aaron Sorkin and Steve Zaillian and stars Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill) was Moneyball (September 23). And while the movie has its lags and lulls--like baseball--I was not disappointed. In fact the movie is more naturalistic and lackadaisical than I was expecting. Miller allows his actors--especially great reactor Hill--and the game, to breathe. Pitt is easygoing and comfortable in the role of Oakland As general manager Billy Beane, and Miller's Oscar-winning ...

    Jolie & Pitt Take Turns, Which Will Happen First? Gray Man, Slave, Cleopatra, Maleficent, Salt 2

    Can Hollywood stop waiting for Brad Pitt? The actor has had two projects announced so far this week. Luckily he'll only be acting in one of them. Scheduling would be tricky either way, since in-demand Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie don't work simultaneously. Jolie has Salt 2, Maleficent and Cleopatra in the pipelines, while Pitt is currently filming Marc Forster's World War Z. Pitt is now in talks to star in The Gray Man, based on Adam Cozad's script (on 2010 Black List), which is an adaptation of Mark Greaney's novel. James Gray (the man behind Joaquin Phoenix starrers We Own the Night and Two Lovers) will direct for New Regency (which was ...
