Brad Pitt in Cliff Booth Mode: He Does His Own Stunts in Bullet Train
The star has plenty of fight scenes in David Leitch’s movie (John Wick, Deadpool 2).
Playing a stuntman at Quentin Tarantino obviously pleased Brad Pitt, who follows up with another action-packed project: Bullet Train, by David Leitch. The star knows the director well, who was the stunt coordinator on Fight Club (and who also directed Deadpool 2, among others), and at 57, he bluffed the film crew by performing his own stunts, such as Cliff Booth (his character in Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood ) at his best.
Brad has done 95% of his stunts: fights, second-team director Greg Rementer tells Vulture. He’s a born athlete, he’s good at it! Moreover, I have never had so many actors of this magnitude gathered in the same film who excelled so much during our physical training: Brad, Brian (Tyree Henry), Michael Shannon, Hiroyuki Sonada, Andrew Koji – who are ‘already knew about it thanks to the Warrior- series, all these actors have their share of good action scenes and they did a lot of the stunts themselves.’ ‘
Note that Sandra Bullock, Zazie Beetz, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also part of the cast of this film inspired by the manga Maria Beetle, by Kotaro Isaka, which follows several hired killers with various specialties, all of whom are found onboard. the same train … and kill each other there. Lady Gaga would also be attached to the project, although the director does not confirm anything for the moment. Just finishing filming, Leitch still said a few words to Vulture: “ We were lucky to be able to shoot in LA in this period where artists could rework and to have had Brad on this project so that he had just received his Oscar, and also to have a great script by Zak Olkewicz, who was able to attract the best people to this film. We managed to shoot safely in the middle of a pandemic and that’s pretty crazy. ”
