Apple in Exclusive Negotiations for Brad Pitt's Racing Film
Apple is currently “in exclusive negotiations” for Brad Pitt and Joseph Kosinski’s untitled racing film.
According to reports, the title will mark the first big film deal of 2022 and is priced at somewhere between $130 million USD to $140 million USD. Pitt will portray a racer who comes out of retirement in order to mentor a young driver and be their teammate. Top Gun: Maverick’s Kosinski will direct the film while Ehren Kruger will pen the script, Jerry Bruckheimer will produce and British F1 driver Lewis Hamilton will be involved. Whether or not F1 racing will be shown is yet to be confirmed.
The racing film is Pitt’s latest movie deal with Apple; the tech giant recently acquired Jon Watts’ untitled movie starring Pitt and George Clooney.
Stay tuned for more a trailer and release date.
