Brad Pitt’s latest role will have plenty of fans making a pit stop at the movie theater.

The actor was recently confirmed to star in the upcoming film F1, which explores the unpredictable world of Formula 1 racing.

“I would be a guy who raced in the ‘90s,” Pitt told Sky Sports F1 in July 2023 about his role as a former driver. “[My character] has a horrible crash, kind of craps out and disappears and then is racing in other disciplines. Then his friend, played by Javier Bardem, is a team owner. They’re a last place team. They’re 21 and 22 on the grid. They’ve never scored a point and they have a young phenom played by [newcomer] Damson Idris. He brings me in as a kind of a Hail Mary and high jinks ensue.”

Reports claim that the movie’s budget reached $300 million, and blockbuster producer Jerry Bruckheimer teased moviegoers will like what they see and feel when they watch the film in 2025.

“It’s the only sport where your teammate is also your competitor and that’s great drama in itself,” Bruckheimer told Deadline in July 2024. “Everything we use in the movie actually happened in an F1 race. Nobody can say: ‘That would never happen.’ It happened.”
