I finally got around to reading Steven Zaillian‘s 12.1.08 draft of Moneyball, or a portion of it. And I can kinda see why a producer-manager friend passed along word about it being “terrific, and why Brad Pitt signed on. But the entire Sony staff, Amy Pascal included, was shocked to read the new script which had been substantially rewritten — a whole different movie.” Again, if anyone can please send along the Pascal freak-out draft, I’ll read both and run a comparison piece.
