Sandra Bullock has joined the cast of ‘Bullet Train’.
The “Bird Box” star is the newest name for the Brad Pitt-directed action film “Deadline Reports”.
It is not yet known what role the 56-year-old star will play.
The highly anticipated strip is based on the Japanese novel “Maria Beetle” by Kotaro Isaka and also stars Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji and Bad Bunny.
It tells the story of a group of assassins with different motives aboard a train in Tokyo, Japan, and the script is written by Zak Olkewicz.
David Leitch, who directed Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, will direct and also produce with his wife Kelly McCormick through their company 87North. Antonie Fuqua and Kat Samick will also produce, while Brittany Morrissey will serve as executive producer.
Sandra’s upcoming films include an untitled film by Nora Fingscheidt in which she will play Ruth Slater, a woman who was released from prison after being convicted of a violent crime and re-entering a society that has changed refuses to forgive her past.
The star “Miss Congeniality” will be seen next to Channing Tatum in “The Lost City of D”.
The premise for Adam and Aaron Nee’s romantic adventure is as follows: “A reclusive novelist (Sandra), who is on a book tour with her cover model, is embroiled in an attempted kidnapping that puts them both on a jungle adventure.”
The film has been considered a reunion for Sandra and Ryan Reynolds, who starred in the 2009 rom-com classic “The Proposal”.
The “Deadpool” star was loosely linked to the film, however, and in late 2020 it was reported that the “Magic Mike” star was in final negotiations to take on the male lead.
