Sony Pictures has officially set a Spring 2022 launch date for its star studded action-thriller Bullet Train which hails from John Wick alum and stunt pro turned filmmaker David Leitch. Brad Pitt leads the cast in what is sure to be a rollicking and action drenched, stunt filled bonanza.
Bullet Train will hit theaters on April 8th of next year and the film is centered on a group of assassins who converge on a train to Tokyo. The sh?t hits the fan of course as the rogues gallery all have different and conflicting reasons as to why they are on the train. The body count will then start to rise in spectacular fashion.
Joining Pitt is a robust cast that features Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Andrew Koji, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Hiroyuki Sanada, Benito A. Martinez Ocasio, and Sandra Bullock. An impressive ensemble indeed and one that just might bring audiences out to see it.
Leitch also produced via his 87North production banner along with Kelly McCormick as well as Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent Seven, Training Day, The Equalizer) and Kat Samick (The Equalizer, Southpaw, Infinite). Zak Olkewicz (Fear Street) penned the screenplay.
With Leitch at the helm and 87Eleven developing the action set pieces, this one remains high on my list for must sees in 2022. First look footage cannot come fast enough.
