Brad Pitt is a good friend to have, especially if you are Michael Lewis. Pitt purchased the film rights to Lewis’ wildly successful book, Moneyball, a look at the unorthodox style of Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane, and the two worked together to bring it to the big screen. We already knew that Pitt had optioned Lewis’ latest novel, The Big Short, an analysis of the 2008 financial crisis, for production under his Plan B banner. Now, NY Magazine is reporting that Plan B and Paramount Pictures are moving quickly and have already hired Charles Randolph (The Interpreter) to write a script. Hopefully there are not any Moneyball-esque delays with the film. Otherwise, Lewis might fall in Pitt’s speed-dial rankings.
