"Moneyball" movie back on track

Dec 5, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

Last summer, Sony pulled the plug on the adaptation of Moneyball, likely thinking that even with Brad Pitt and Steven Soderbergh attached it wasn’t going to make any dough.  But now that another Lewis sports adaptation — “The Blind Side” — has made good money in its first week, Hollywood is changing its mind.  Sony has announced that Bennett Miller, who was nominated for a Best Director Academy Award for “Capote,” is in negotiations to helm the project and things may get underway again soon.

I’m still a bit dubious that “Moneyball” makes a good movie. But if they do what they appeared to do with the “Blind Side” — i.e. take a slice of the human stories involved and build something off of that rather than make it a movie about sabermetrics — they might just have something there.

Oh, and they have to keep the scene from the script in which Billy Beane hooks up with the Outback Steakhouse waitress in Cleveland.  That could cement his legend.

    I would propose doing message commercialise, let me explain. You can get a video recording professionally produced for around $47.00 97.00 (30-60 seconds) demonstrating your surpassing desk drawer slide. You can even prove how good it is to destruct your contenders and blast it around over 100 internet video sites for as little as $5.00 per site to be done manualy!You can get keyword search done for you professionally, naming the keyword words that will get you a modest amount of search volum, yes with duller competing pages. Thank you for this article! I’ve just checked a truly open news site about money Test it!

    To commercialise in footings of quality rather than monetary value, and in order to differentiate accordingly, you need to play along the criterial format of the 4 Ps marketing plan. That is, Price, Product, Place and Promotion obviously you recognize the central attributes of the product, and the price, but for place you should consider around the type of people who are willing to pay over 4x price of competing production whereas the second-class option may be sold where accent is on cost, your ware will be suited to places/distributors where the customers will be willing to pay for quality. Thank you for this article! I’ve just discovered a truly good amazing news source about seo advertising Try it!
