Brad Pitt’s new baseball movie is hitting Phoenix in the next day or two for a couple of days of filming.
Pitt plays a baseball executive in the film “Moneyball,” an adaptation of a best-selling book.
So will Pitt be here for the filming? Probably, says the film’s publicist, Spooky Stevens.
“Yes, but it’s not written in stone,” she said.
Stevens wasn’t willing to say much about what’s happening here.
