Sony action thriller Bullet Train continues to speed towards production with a cast that grows more exciting with each announcement.

The cast for the Brad Pitt-headlined action thriller Bullet Train, has been steadily building. And frankly, it’s only looking more and more impressive with each added name.

Already starring in the movie alongside Pitt are Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Joey King, Andrew Koji, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz and Masi Oka. Now, it’s been announced that Sandra Bullock will be joining the cast too.

Directed by David Leitch, helmer of Deadpool 2, the Sony-backed film is based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kitaro Isaka. The plot centres around a self-contained story that ‘follows a group of assassins with conflicting motives aboard a fast-moving train in Tokyo.’

Obviously Sandra Bullock knows a thing or two about high stakes, high speed, vehicular showdowns as she made her name in the 1994 action classic Speed. This will mark the first time Pitt and Bullock have appeared together onscreen.

Casting reports are no longer including Lady Gaga’s name, as back in November the actor and singer was reported to also be appearing in the film. However, this could be because she was rumoured to be playing one of the assassins in a smaller role rather than a leading part, unless she has departed the project unannounced. Or never signed on the dotted line.

It’s an exciting ensemble cast to be part of and we’re increasingly looking forward to seeing what happens with this one. More news as we have it.
