Believe it or not, there’s a Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt movie coming soon. The film is finally bringing the two Oscar winning actors together for the first time. The latest reports suggest that Sandra Bullock has joined Brad Pitt to star in the upcoming Sony action film “Bullet Train.”
The upcoming action thriller is based on the popular book “Maria Beetle” by Japanese author Kotaro Isaka. The film centers around a group of assassins and hit men on a bullet train from Tokyo fighting over a bag of money. The tone of the film is said to be a mixture of Sandra Bullock’s first film “Speed,” and Liam Neeson’s 2014 movie “Non Stop.”
Director David Leitch, who has directed films such as “Hobbs & Shaw,” “Deadpool 2” and “Atomic Blonde,” will direct the upcoming Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt movie and supervise the script, which will be written by Zak Olkewicz. Other actors joining the cast include Aaron Taylor Johnson, Joey King, Michael Shannon, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, Logan Lerman, Andrew Koji and Masi Oka. Although the cast has been finalized, the details surrounding their respective roles are unknown.
Executive producers on the project include Ryosuke Saegusa and Yuma Terada of CTB Inc., who represents Isaka and holds the IP for the book. From the United States, Antoine Fuqua will be producing “Bullet Train” through 87North together with Kelly McCormick. Kat Samick will serve as another executive producer for the project. Brittany Morrissey will be overseeing the project on behalf of Sony Pictures.
The closest link between Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt viewers have seen was from the “Ocean’s 11” franchise, where Brad Pitt starred in the first three films. Bullock was seen in the 2018 spinoff film “Ocean’s 8.” Represented by CAA, Sandra Bullock was last seen in the 2018 Netflix thriller film “Bird Box” and is expected to be starring next in an untitled Netflix drama directed by Nora Fingscheidt.
Despite the project being announced, Sony have declined to comment about Bullock’s casting. Production for the film commenced in October 2020 in Los Angeles. Even though a crew member tested positive for COVID-19 in December 2020, production on the film continued.
Joey King revealed on Instagram a couple of weeks ago her look for the upcoming movie, together with fellow cast member Brian Tyree Henry. The black-and-white photo shows some blood on Henry’s attire and plastic face guards that were used for COVID-19 protection.
“Bullet Train” is slated to release either later this year or next year.
