‘Bullet Train’ Film: Action, Travel, & Brad Pitt

Bullet Train, directed by David Leitch, is an action comedy film based on a Japanese novel called Maria Beetle by Kōtarō Isaka. Theaters and distributors pushed back the film multiple times. The action-comedy made several changes in its creation; it was originally supposed just to be an action film, and at one point, Lady Gaga was supposed to have a role. Here is everything we know about the upcoming movie.


What is the Bullet Train movie about?

Ladybug (Brad Pitt) wants to give up his assassin life but is pulled back by his handler, Maria Beetle (Sandra Bullock), to retrieve a briefcase on a bullet train with very few stops. However, there are several other assassins, and their objectives are all connected.
