Bringing the event to a blockbuster end, the Tokyo International Film Festival just announced their selection for this year's closing film as Brad Pitt's "Moneyball."

The biography/drama - an adaption of the Michael Lewis book - tells the true story of "Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane's successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players."

In addition to Pitt's A-list prowess, the film also features co-stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright and Jonah Hill.

The Tokyo International Film Festival opens October 22, with "Moneyball" set to draw the final curtain of the event with an October 30th showing.
