Oscar nominated movie Moneyball is out in the UK shops now and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have given us this great featurette which interviews Brad Pitt (who plays Billy Beane), Director Bennett Miller and Producer Michael De Luca who talk us through was like making a movie about people who are still very much active in the sport in which the movie is focused.

Moneyball stars Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) challenges the system and defies conventional wisdom when he is forced to rebuild his small-market team on a limited budget. Despite opposition from the old guard, the media, fans and their own field manager (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Beane – with the help of a young, number crunching, Yale-educated economist (Jonah Hill) – develops a roster of misfits and changes the way the game is played forever.
