If you’re a fan of Formula 1 and Brad Pitt, get ready for some exciting news! It has been announced that Brad Pitt will be starring in an upcoming Formula 1-related film, which is set to take the sport to new heights. Not only that, but seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton will also be playing a key role in the movie.
The popularity of Formula 1 has been on the rise in recent years, thanks in large part to the success of Netflix’s docuseries ‘Drive to Survive’. This has led to Formula 1 becoming a hot topic for content, and the upcoming film featuring Brad Pitt is one of the most highly-anticipated releases.
While the film does not yet have an official name or release date, we do know that it will be available to watch on Apple. The film will be produced by Hamilton’s production company, Dawn Apollo Films, and will be directed by Joseph Kosinski, who previously directed the hit film ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.
The plot of the film revolves around Brad Pitt’s character (Sonny Hayes), who is a retired Formula 1 driver. He comes out of retirement to mentor a young driver as their team-mate. The young driver will be played by Damson Idris (Joshua Pearce), and Kerry Condon, a BAFTA Award winner, will portray the team’s technical director.
One of the most exciting aspects of the film is that it will be filmed during the 2023 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. However, contrary to some rumors, Brad Pitt will not be driving an actual Formula 1 car. Instead, he will be behind the wheel of a Formula 2 or Formula 3 car, outside of live Formula 1 sessions.

With the star power of Brad Pitt and the involvement of Lewis Hamilton, it’s sure to attract both racing enthusiasts and movie lovers alike.
