Sandra Bullock joins Brad Pitt and Lady Gaga in new film ‘Bullet Train’

Sandra Bullock has become the latest high-profile actor to join the eagerly-anticipated new David Leitch’s upcoming thriller film Bullet Train.

Based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kotaro Isaka, the film will tell the story of five deadly trained assassins all on the same bullet train travelling from Tokyo to Morioka. The fast-moving transport has limited stops before its destination and, without knowing what is waiting at the end of the journey, it becomes a tale of who can stay alive.

Now, it appears that Bullock is the latest name to be added to the cast, joining lady Gaga, Brad Pitt, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Andrew Koji, Masi Oka and Michael Shannon for the film.

Director Leitch, who is celebrated for his past projects such as John Wick, Deadpool 2, Hobbs & Shaw and more, will produce the new film alongside Kelly McCormick through their 87North company. It is also reported that Antoine Fuqua, Kat Samick and Brittany Morrissey will be on producing duties for Sony Pictures.

Like most productions this year, a specific release date has not been confirmed due to the current health crisis. The film has encountered numerous issues after production was halted in after a crew member tested positive for coronavirus.

Now though, Sony are hoping to continue work on the film in Los Angeles with coronavirus protocols in place.
