Brad Pitt F1 Movie To Be Released In June Next Year

Brad Pitt’s Formula 1 movie will be released next June, the sport’s bosses have confirmed.

Filming for the movie, the name of which has yet to be revealed, was delayed amid the US actors’ and writers’ strike.

But F1 said the film, co-produced by seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton and extensively shot at the Silverstone Circuit, will be released on 25 June next year.

Pitt, 60, will play the role of a veteran driver, Sonny Hayes, who is returning to the F1 grid after a long absence.

Pitt raced an adapted Formula Two car between practice sessions at the British Grand Prix at the Northamptonshire circuit last July.

Alongside his fictional rookie team-mate Joshua Pierce, played by British actor Damson Idris, Pitt lined up with the sport’s 20 drivers prior to the race.
