Bullet Train | Sony | August 5, 2022 | Brad Pitt and a bunch of other people

Recommended Posts






David Leitch, whose film credits include “Deadpool 2,” “Hobbs & Shaw” and “Atomic Blonde,” is heading back to the big screen with action thriller “Bullet Train” for Sony Pictures.


In addition to directing, Leitch will supervise the script, which will be written by Zak Olkewicz. Plot details for the movie, based ont he hugely popular Japanese manga, are currently being kept under wraps.


Leitch and Kelly McCormick will produce “Bullet Train” through their company 87North, along with Antoine Fuqua and Kat Samick. Brittany Morrissey is the executive overseeing the project for Sony Pictures.


Sony recently announced the studio is developing “One Punch Man,” also based on a popular Japanese manga, that they hope has franchise potential.


After helping launch the “John Wick” franchise with Chad Stahelski, Leitch has become one of the most sought after directors for tentpole action pics. He was handpicked by Ryan Reynolds to direct “Deadpool 2,” which went on to gross more then $700 million worldwide. He followed that up with “Fast and Furious” spin-off “Hobbs & Shaw.”

Truth be told, I am looking forward to this. I've only seen two of Leitch's films thus far (Deadpool 2 and Hobbs and Shaw), and he knows how to direct action.


Box-office performance, even without COVID, will be tricky, though: Pitt's pretty inconsistent there.

EXCLUSIVE: The Kissing Booth star Joey King is in negotiations to join Brad Pitt in the action-thriller “Bullet Train” for Sony Pictures.


Hobbs & Shaw director David Leitch will direct and also supervise the script, which will be written by Zak Olkewicz. The film has been moving at light speed since Leitch attached himself last month with Pitt coming on shortly after, marking his first film commitment since winning his first Oscar for acting in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood. The film is looking at a fall start in Los Angeles.
