After Top Gun: Maverick, The Director Will Make A Car Racing Movie With Brad Pitt

After the continuation of Top Gun, a car racing film starring Brad Pitt and directed by Joseph Kosinki is in the works.

While the Covid cheerfully prevents Paramount from releasing its Top Gun : Maverick in theaters (first release scheduled for 2019, postponed to 2020, then to 2021 and currently scheduled for May 2022) and that we are still awaiting the release of his film with Chris Hemsworth on Netflix, Escape From Spiderhead, director Joseph Kosinski is said to be already affiliated with a new feature film project.

Indeed, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the director of too unfairly little put forward Tron: Legacy and Oblivion would be on a car racing film project, starring Brad Pitt in the lead role, after he just won an Oscar, for the first time as an actor, for his role in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.

The Top Gun 2 team wisely waits for the film to finally come out …

No precise title or summary for the film, however producer Jerry Bruckheimer (who produced the Pirates of the Caribbean, some films by Michael Bay but also The solitary by Michael Mann) and screenwriter Ehren Kruger (Le Cercle : The Ring de Gore Verbinski, Ghost in the Shell by Rupert Sanders or the Dumbo by Tim Burton) would also be associated with the project. Note that the latter two also collaborated with Kosinski on the sequel to the Top Gun de Tony Scott.

What’s more, the project would unleash the studios who would all seek to seize it. Paramount, MGM, Sony, Universal, Netflix, Amazon and even Disney, which usually does not get into this kind of game: all of Hollywood seems excited by the idea and wants to give up its ticket to produce and release the film. in theaters and / or streaming.

The studios on the alert at the slightest project announcement.

The future will tell us who will triumph in this cockfight, but it is true that the presence, on paper, of Kosinski and Pitt has enough to make the project at least attractive. Note also that racing driver Lewis Hamilton is also said to be involved in the project, but it is not said if the athlete will be present on the set as a technical advisor or as an actor alongside Brad Pitt.

The actor also seems as prolific as ever since there is talk of seeing him soon in Damien Chazelle’s new film, Babylon, which is scheduled for release in early 2023, but also in David Leitch’s upcoming films, Bullet Train, and Jon Watts, Cop Car.
