Collider has reported on yet another addition to the cast of Sony Pictures’ upcoming assassin flick Bullet Train. They say that Oscar nominee Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born, Machete Kills) is set to take a smaller role in the film from Atomic Blonde and John Wick director David Leitch.
Bullet Train focuses on a group of assassins on a Japanese bullet train with varying motivations to be there. What role Gaga is playing isn’t known at this time. She is also leading Ridley Scott’s next film Gucci, a fashion industry crime thriller that doesn’t begin shooting in Italy until March-April.
The cast that consists of recent Oscar winner Brad Pitt (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood), Joey King (The Dark Knight Rises), Andrew Koji (G.I. Joe Origins: Snake Eyes), Michael Shannon (Knives Out, Man of Steel), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Godzilla, Kick-Ass, Avengers: Age of Ultron), Brian Tyree Henry (Godzilla vs Kong, Widows, Joker, Eternals), Masi Oka (Heroes), and Zazie Beetz (Joker, Deadpool 2).
It’ll be interesting to see if Sony is attempting to make a standalone film here or attempting more of a John Wick level franchise led by Pitt.
Filming will take place in Los Angeles, California and Sony hasn’t given Bullet Train a release date.
