Sony Pictures released Tuesday a new trailer for David Leitch‘s highly-anticipated movie “Bullet Train“.
The movie is based on the popular Japanese book, “Maria Beetle” by Kotaro Isaka. The novel revolves around a group of hitmen and assassins with conflicting motives on a train in Tokyo.
Just like the novel, the movie takes place in Japan on the titular bullet train on a trip from Tokyo to Morioka.
“Bullet Train” stars Brad Pitt, Joey King, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon, Logan Lerman, Masi Oka, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Benito A Martínez Ocasio.
Pitt will be playing Ladybug, the lead assassin on board the bullet train. Following Pitt’s memorable role in Sandra Bullock’s “The Lost City”, she returns the favor and cameos in the movie as Ladybug’s handler, Maria Beetle.
King stars as Prince, another killer who hides behind the façade of an innocent schoolgirl. Taylor-Johnson and Tyree Henry will portray Tangerine and Lemon, twin assassins who team up on taking down their marks.
“Bullet Train” is produced by Kelly McCormick, David Leitch, and Antoine Fuqua with Ryosuke Saegusa, Yuma Terada, Brent O’Connor, and Kat Samick serving as executive producers.
The movie is penned by Zak Olkewicz and helmed by Leitch, the director of “Deadpool 2” and “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”.
