American actor Brad Pitt’s stalled baseball movie ‘Moneyball’ is now back on, with director Bennett Miller believed to be ready to direct the film.

Miller, 42, is in talks to direct the Sony Pictures film, which Steven Soderbergh quit over script issues this summer, reports Contactmusic. The film is based on Michael Lewis’ book of the same name, and it chronicles baseball team the Oakland A’s General Manager Billy Beane.

Beane had turned the lowly squad into winners thanks to an unorthodox method of hiring stars. Pitt, 45, has been part of the project for over a year.
