Looks like the children of the Jolie-Pitt household are getting one big Father's Day treat--some extra time with their dad now that his latest movie is in free-fall.

Brad Pitt was slated to begin production on Moneyball in Phoenix, Az. on Monday, with director Steven Soderbergh at the wheel.

Studio Columbia Picture and its honcho Amy Pascal, however, have ditched the project last minute due to major script problems, reports Variety.

The baseball themed flick, a usual Soderbergh hybrid of fictional vignettes and real-life interviews, now has a limited period to find a new home to finance its shooting and distribution.

Agents for star Pitt and director Soderbergh are said to be targeting Paramount and Warner Bros.
