'Moneyball' back on

Aaron Sorkin will take over the script, Steven Soderbergh will no longer direct, but Brad Pitt is still attached to star and the movie remains at Sony, says Variety's Marc Graser.

Sony is high on Sorkin after recently picking up his script "The Social Network," that revolves around the formation of Facebook. David Fincher is attached to direct that pic....

Michael DeLuca, based on the Sony lot, is producing both "Moneyball" and the Facebook movies.
