Lewis Hamilton A Producer On Brad Pitt’s F1 Movie… “Hollywood Is The New Venture With Retirement Pressing”

The untitled project, confirmed by Apple this week, will be directed by Joseph Kosinski, the man behind Pitt’s Top Gun: Maverick. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the storyline will see Pitt, 58, play a seasoned racing driver who comes out of retirement in order to mentor a promising rookie.

 

Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman are also on board with Hamilton as producers, working with Pitt’s Plan B company. F1 films have been rare in the past. Two standouts from the last decade are Asif Kapaida’s 2011 documentary Senna, focused on the career of three-time world champion Ayrton Senna Senna, and Ron Howard’s 2013 movie Rush, on the rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

 

 

In the late 1990s Sylvester Stallone attempted to make a movie around Formula One after attending the 1997 Italian Grand Prix, only for his efforts to be blocked by the sport’s former boss Bernie Ecclestone.
