The Bird Box actress, 56, is reportedly in talks to star alongside Pitt in the highly anticipated movie, Bullet Train, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is based on the namesake book by Kotaro Isaka, following a group of hitmen and assassins as they embark on conflicting missions. The movie takes place on a train in Tokyo, which explains the title. (It’s pegged to be a cross between Speed and Non-Stop.)
In addition to Pitt, Bullock is joining a star-studded cast, which includes Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, Andrew Koji and Michael Shannon. David Leitch (Deadpool 2) is directing Bullet Train and overseeing the rewrite of the script, which was originally penned by Zak Olkewicz (Lights Out).
Although Bullock and Pitt both starred in the Ocean’s franchise—Bullock in Ocean’s Eight, and Pitt in Ocean’s Eleven—this is the first time they’ll be acting opposite one another in a major motion picture. Not to mention, this is Pitt’s first movie role since he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, so the pressure’s on.
