Brad Pitt: On the Moneyball

Brad Pitt: On the Moneyball

Brad Pitt will be spending some time in L.A. soon, as he started shooting his new movie Moneyball.

Steve Elzer, a rep for the movie, confirmed the news to Life & Style. Meanwhile, partner Angelina Jolie is still filming espionage thriller Salt in New York.

Moneyball centers on the major-league’s Oakland A’s and their general manager Billy Beane (Pitt) who attempts to draft players to the team using computer-generated analysis.

    Thanks for the Moneyball thread. Just a semantics clarification, brad has NOT started filming the movie already, if you click on the L&S link, it states he WILL begin in June. “Brad will begin shooting Moneyball in California in June, Steve Elzer, a representative for the movie, confirms to Life & Style. Meanwhile, Angelina is still filming Salt in New York”
    Just wanted to be clear so the anti-B&A fans don’t start harping that brad started working on the other coast the week of her birthday. So to those who need things spelled out…Brad WILL BEGIN shooting sometime in june….he did NOT start already.

    Best of the Rest: Sugar t***! Pitt

    Monday, June 1st 2009, 4:00 AM

    Brad Pitt accepts the “Fight Club Award” at the Spike TV Guys Choice awards.

    Brad Pitt proved that “boys will be boys” at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards on Saturday night. “Thanks, sugar t***!” Pitt exclaimed to Mel Gibson after the actor presented him with an award for “Fight Club.” Pitt was taking a tongue-in-cheek jab at the “Braveheart” actor, who called a female police officer “sugar t***” when he was arrested for a DUI in 2006.

    You may have read that a couple of days ago Angelina Jolie was taken to the hospital after being injured on the Long Island set of her new thriller, Salt. Jolie bumped her head during a stunt, sustaining a cut between her eyes that bled. The actress wasn’t seriously injured, and the production company released the following statement:

    “This morning while filming an action sequence… Angelina Jolie sustained a minor injury. As a precautionary measure, Ms. Jolie will be taken to the hospital and examined. Production on the film has resumed.”

    Meanwhile, new photos from the set have surfaced over at, one of which you can see to your left. To check out about 50 new shots, click here. The new images pertain to scenes filmed in the Borough of Queens in New York City yesterday (Sunday).

    Jolie seems none the worse for wear after her little mishap.

    Jolie stars as Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer who swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. When she is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy, Salt goes on the run to clear her name and ultimately prove she is a patriot. Using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative, she must elude capture and protect her husband or the world’s most powerful forces will erase any trace of her existence.

    The Phillip Noyce-directed film co-stars Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

    Salt opens in theaters on July 23, 2010

    The movie doesn’t have funding? I thought it was due to start shooting the middle of this month.
    I checked around at a few movie sites a couple of weeks back and as far as I can tell, NO, the movie does not have financing. “Mid-June” was their target start date. Hell, GB hasn’t signed a contract and was still shopping around looking at other projects before he went to India…where he once again denied being interested in X. Doesn’t exactly sound like a guy who’s dying to work with her, does it? The tabs and X’s PR ho are the ones who keep saying the movie is going to start shooting soon. It was supposed to be a NYC shoot…but X went running back to LA to latch onto Courteney the millisecond she finished Turkey Baster. I’m more convinced than ever that they’re having threesomes. Otherwise why in the hell would DA put up with X being attached to Courteney’s hip like they’re Siamese twins.

    Winona Ryder has no resentment towards Angelina Jolie for stealing her thunder in ‘Girl, Interrupted’.
    The actress had the lead role of Susanna in the 1999 but it was relative newcomer Angelina who wowed fans and critics alike, winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, for her portrayal of Lisa.
    She said: “I knew from the outset that whoever played Lisa was going to get all the attention. At one point they asked if I wanted to play Lisa and I said, ‘No, I want to be Susanna.’
    “But there was no resentment. When it came out people almost felt bad for me. But I expected it all along. I was really happy with the film, and really proud of it.”
    Winona also felt sympathy for her co-star because her talent was always overshadowed by her appearance.
    She added to Empire magazine: “At the time I worked with her, she was battling her looks because she’s so beautiful. She wanted very much to be taken seriously and not just judged on her looks. And she conquered that.”

    Awwww…you guys…it’s soooooooooooo sad. misManagement was dropped by another 61 theaters this weekend and is now only playing in 49. But the good news for X is that the movie took in a whopping $59,268 to bring it’s grand total to $809,787 after 3 weeks. It was dropped by 62.5% of the venues it was in. At that rate it’ll never get to $875,000, let alone $1MIL. Does Hallmark make a card for people mourning the death of their career?

  • an oldie

    Wow, PT, your post about Bountyhunter being a romcom instead of an action movie was hilarious. Huvane and Filler Face must hate you with a passion. One of her Goddess Circle members must be the one harassing you on JJ.

    I did some digging around – according to the Variety article that said X and GB were in negotiations the movie is being financed by Columbia Pictures. It’s being directed by Andy Tennet who did Hitch, so maybe it does have funding. Several of the movie sites I checked a few weeks ago seemed to think the movie was stillborn and dead because many studios were being much more caucious with funds.
    It sure seems like a bad gamble – especially since misManagement just bombed big-time. Although PS I Love You did decent box office – $53.7MIL domestic/$103 foreign and only cost $30MIL to make. So Gerry’s not the risk…that leaves you know who… BBBBWWWHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!!!

  • http://deleted val

    The guessing game:
    Who is a major box office risk right now, he/she is 40 year old aged sitcom hag, cannot move on, love to tan in me–hee-co while drinking margaritas, barren, selfish, lard face, and can whine, whine whine for 5 f…ck…inn.. years! I can hear the jeopardy theme song in my head…lol!

    ROTFLMAO. My stalker’s been sitting around all afternoon waiting for me to post. I post and 3 minutes later she comes out of the woodwork like cockroaches when the lights are turned out. Awwwww….that’s so psychotic. Thankfully I don’t have any pet bunnies so the troll can’t emulate her idol…

    Godless Circle member? I thought it was X doing her own dirty work for a change. She’s got plenty of free time. She’s prolly stalking me from her poolside after a few too many margeritas. Thank God she doesn’t have a video camera on that laptop!

    it kinda sounds boring tbh
    another sports movie….

    What’s the deal with all of these 40ish and over 40 actresses signing on to do “I’m 40, waited to long and now I want a baby” movies? Now Halle Berry is going to do a movie about a woman with a psycho surrogate carrying her baby. It’s like a cross between X/JLo’s movies and Beyonce’s Obsessed. Barren wombs. Is this really all HW can come up with for chick flix? Enough already!
