Pitt is slated to star in David Leitch’s 'Bullet Train' for 2020.
The 56-year-old actor will have a role in Sony Pictures’ new production based on a Japanese Novel 'Maria Beetle' by Kotaro Isaka.
In the novel, five assassins find themselves on a fast-moving bullet train from Tokyo to Morioka with only a few stops in between.
They discover their missions are related to one another. The question they face is: “who will make it off the train alive and what awaits them at the terminal station?”
Leitch has so far directed many popular and award-winning movies including ‘John Wick’, ‘Deadpool: No Good Deed’, ‘Deadpool 2’ and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
