Brad Pitt and Joe Kosinski reunite for upcoming F1 racing movie
Brad Pitt is set to star in an upcoming F1 racing film with director Joe Kosinski at the helm. Apparently, the project also involves famous British runner Lewis Hamilton. This upcoming film will be the next in the line of Hollywood films dealing with sports, with hit examples like Ford vs. Ferrari before.
Apparently, Brad Pitt and Joe Kosinski have been trying to get together for a movie about F1 racing for a long time. In 2013, Pitt was supposed to be involved in a movie titled Go like hell, in which Kosinski and Tom Cruise were also associated. However, the project was eventually transformed into something else and spawned the hit blockbuster. Ford vs. Ferrari, with a completely different director and actor combo: it starred Matt Damon and Christian Bale and was directed by James Mangold.
However, it looks like Pitt will get what he has since wished for in this upcoming project, and he has also excited many in the F1 world, especially due to Lewis Hamilton’s direct involvement in this project. Emmy Award-winning automotive expert Paul Brian recently tweeted about this upcoming movie, apparently praying, “Please, my God, don’t let this be cheesy.”
Hamilton has already produced Cars 2, Cars 3, and Zoolander 2, but he’s only appeared in cameo roles so far. If her involvement in this upcoming film is what fans have come to expect, it could well be her first appearance in a major feature film. Along with big names like Brad Pitt, Lewis Hamilton and Joe Kosinski at the helm, the project also involves veteran mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the man behind the Bad Boys, Pirates of the Caribbean, and National treasure franchisees. Bruckheimer also collaborates with Kosinski for the next film Top Gun: Maverick. Screenwriter Ehren Kruger is also part of this huge set.
However, not much is known yet about what the film will be about. But it sure sounds exciting, as it has already started a bidding war between major Hollywood banners and streaming platforms, for the rights to this upcoming project. According to sources, offers are being made by studios like Paramount, MGM, Sony and Universal for the rights to this film. On the flip side, platforms like Netflix, Apple, and Amazon have also joined in the race, which is quite surprising since these platforms generally stay away from these kinds of bidding wars. This news comes to us from the Hollywood Reporter.
In a recent interview, Jon Bernthal touched on the possibility of playing The Punisher in the MCU, but only under one big condition.
