All aboard! Stunt choreographer-turned-director David Leitch (Hobbs & Shaw, Deadpool 2) is the mastermind behind the new action comedy, Bullet Train. It stars Brad Pitt as an unlucky assassin, codenamed “Ladybug”, whose latest assignment pits him against a pack of deadly agents—all with connected, but conflicting, objectives—on the world’s fastest train. An adaptation of the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kōtarō Isaka, the non-stop thrill ride also stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Koji, Benito A. Martínez Ocasio and Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock.
