Brad Pitt on playing a philosophical assassin in Bullet Train: ‘He’s a chump’

Brad Pitt-starrer Bullet Train will be released in India by Sony Pictures Entertainment India on August 5 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Hollywood star Brad Pitt says he found the “most fun” role of his career in Ladybug, a chump of an assassin, in the upcoming action film Bullet Train.
The Oscar-winning actor headlines the Sony movie helmed by Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, who previously served as Pitt’s stunt double in many movies such as Fight Club and Troy.
Brad Pitt said Bullet Train came to him at the peak of the coronavirus pandemic and felt like a breath of fresh air.
“When this script came along, it was like five- six months into the pandemic. There was this air of depression. We were all getting a little crazy and this film was a really funny piece.
“Also concurrently, it was with an old friend of mine David Leitch. We had an actor-stuntman relationship. He was my stunt double for Fight Club, Mexican, Troy and Mr and Mrs Smith. So it was really to come back around full circle. But this time Leitch my man was the boss,” Pitt said during a virtual global press conference of the film.
He was joined by director David Leitch, co-stars Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry and producer Kelly McCormick.

In Bullet Train, Brad Pitt stars as the seasoned assassin Ladybug, who wants to give up the life but is pulled back in by his handler Maria Beetle in order to collect a briefcase on a bullet train heading from Tokyo to Kyoto. Once on board, he and the other competing assassins discover that their objectives are all connected.
Pitt said the makers imagined his character as someone who returns to work after a mental breakdown.
