Over the past year, there has been various stories about “John Wick” and “Hobbs & Shaw” director David Leitch’s new action film “Bullet Train”.
That film’s story centers on a group of hitmen and assassins with conflicting motives on a high-speed train across Japan, and the tone is said to be a blend of “Speed and Non-Stop”.
The cast was led by Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King, Zazie Beetz, Hiroyuki Sanada, Logan Lerman, Karen Fukuhara, Andrew Koji, rapper Bad Bunny and Michael Shannon.
At one time Lady Gaga was also involved, but her name drifted off later casting reports. Collider has now learned that a scheduling conflict with Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci” led to her exit.
They also learned that Bullock is the one taking over that role of Maria Beetle, the handler of Ladybug (Pitt). Sony Pictures is handling the film’s release on April 8th.
