Angelina Jolie's partner Brad obsessed with Moneyball. He has spent four years bring it to the screen.
He said “I became obsessed with the book and what the guys in Oakland did in re-imagining the game – like questioning religion in a way."
“It’s about how we value things: how we value each other, how we value ourselves and how we decide who’s a winner based on those values. The film questions the very idea of how to define success. The players these guys hired thought of themselves as failures and suddenly they were given the opportunity to play, proved worthy and changed the game.”
