CHECKOUT: F1 Drivers Gave A Huge Approval To Lewis Hamilton’s $140 Million Movie From The Paddock

Recently, Lewis Hamilton launched his film production house, Dawn Apollo. And as expected, the first movie under Hamilton’s production will center around Formula One and will star Brad Pitt. The title of the movie, as decided so far, is Apex. Moreover, the movie is about a retired F1 racer who comes out of retirement to help a young, budding F1 driver take on the challenge of the pinnacle of Motorsport.

Makers of Top Gun: Maverick are also working behind the movie. In the recent past, the principal photography of the movie got delayed because of the 2023 Hollywood worker’s strike. Anyhow, the movie will release soon. But before that, Kym Illman raised the hype of the movie even more.

Moreover, Hamilton is getting all the support he can from F1 as well. As per reports, F1 is helping the production team in every way possible. Moreover, F1 allowed two extra cars to drive in Silverstone and Hungaroring. On top of that, Lewis Hamilton has been helping with the production despite the pressure of the current season.
