Brad Pitt will star in the action movie Bullet Train, based on the manga “Maria Beetle” Kotaro Isaka. The movie will be directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2, John Wick, Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw).
At the center of the story are five hitmen. They meet in a high-speed train that travels from Tokyo to Morioka with several stops, and soon a conflict begins between the heroes. According to THR, Pitt will play an American hitman named Ladybug.
The project is overseen by Sony Pictures. It was previously described as a mixture of “The Speed” with Keanu Reeves and “Non-Stop” with Liam Neeson. One of the producers is the director of “Training Day” Antoine Fuqua.
Bullet Train’s script will be written by Zak Olkewicz.
