The upcoming David Leitch-directed action thriller Bullet Train has added another member to its cast as Collider reports that Oscar winner Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born) is set to star alongside Brad Pitt.
Bullet Train – which is based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by best-selling author Kotaro Isaka – will be directed by Leitch who will also be supervising the script written by Zak Olkewicz. The book follows five assassins who all find themselves on the same train from Tokyo to Morioka. The English translation of Isaka’s novel will be released next year, however, it is unclear how much of the source material the movie adaptation will be translating to the big screen.
Lady Gaga will be joining the already announced cast that includes Brad Pitt, Joey King, Andrew Koji, Aaron-Taylor Johnson, Michael Shannon, Zazie Beetz, Masi Oka, and Brian Tyree Henry.
Leitch, whose credits include Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, John Wick, and Hobbs and Shaw, will produce the project with Kelly McCormick through their company 87North, along with Antoine Fuqua and Kat Samick. Brittany Morrissey is the executive overseeing the project for Sony Pictures.
