As we’ve discussed previously, Brad Pitt and Lewis Hamilton are trying to make a racing movie and now it seems they’ve lined up a studio to work with – Apple.
To sum it up, the pair want to make a racing movie and they have the director of Tron: Legacy, Joseph Kosinski, on board, as well as legendary producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
In late 2020, there was an all-out bidding war for the rights to this movie from every major studio and streamer you can name. Now it seems that Apple is winning that war, according to Deadline, as Apple is in exclusive negotiations with the producers.
We don’t know much about the film except a vague outline courtesy of Deadline, “Brad Pitt [plays] a racer who comes out of retirement to mentor a younger driver and take his final stab at glory on the track as the younger driver’s teammate.”
Sources also say that the budget will likely be around $130 – $140 million.
Nobody knows what Lewis Hamilton’s role will be in the film whether it be onscreen or off. Considering his busy schedule and his lack of experience in serious acting, it seems unlikely he will have an onscreen role, but stranger things have happened.
The film has been somewhat of a passion project for Pitt and Kosinski as in 2013 they were making a racing film titled, Go Like Hell. That project fell apart and eventually re-emerged as the critically acclaimed Ford v Ferrari.
More details are sure to come.
