The film, based on the 2003 book of the same name written by Michael M. Lewis, is set for release on September 23, 2011.

The story centers on Billy Beane and his arrival as Oakland's general manager. Through analysis and a new, non-traditional sabermetric approach to scouting players, Beane attempts to create a competitive baseball team at a fraction of the cost of the large market teams.

The film's script was originally written by Stan Chervin, and Steven Soderbergh replaced David Frankel as director. “I want you to not realize how much information is being thrown at you,” says Soderbergh, when asked how he was going to make a film based on statistics entertaining.

On June 19, 2009, days before filming was set to begin, Sony put the picture on hold.

The script called for elements considered non-traditional for a sports movie, such as interviews with real-life players, and as a result Soderbergh was let go. He was replaced by Bennett Miller, and Aaron Sorkin rewrote the script.Also, the role of Paul DePodesta, formerly to be portrayed by Demetri Martin, was recast, and Jonah Hill was picked for the role. Filming began in July 2010.
