The most awaited movie about Formula One fans is in the making. We have seen Brad Pitt and Lewis Hamilton together several times during the 2022 F1 season, and we know that a movie inspired by Formula One is coming. But are we going to see Hamilton in a movie now? What is the movie basically about? Who is Brad Pitt going to portray? What stage is the movie production at? A lot of worth asking questions are roaming inside fans’ minds. Let’s know the answers by Lewis Hamilton himself.
Lewis Hamilton turned 38 on January 7 this year. At this age, the athletes prepare for their retirement plans, and that’s what Hamilton is doing. He has suggested some pipeline works he schedules to do after he retires. Aso, the seven-time world champion, is one of the people who believes in focusing on their hobbies along with professional work. Recently in an interview, Hamilton said that he is grateful for what Formula One gave him, but this is not everything he gotta do in his life. And puzzling these statements with the establishment of his own film production company last year, we can understand that Hamilton is already started zeroing in on his other dreams.
Meanwhile, speaking of Hamilton’s connection with the movie featuring Brad Pitt, fans should know that they are not going to see the seven-time world champion in the movie. Pitt is portraying the role of a rookie driver who struggles on as well as off the track. And to learn the character of a driver, except for Lewis Hamilton, the seven crown holder, who can sit perfectly? Thus, Pitt is collaborating with Hamilton to learn and dissolve in the lifestyle of a motorsport driver. Maybe the movie will be inspired by Hamilton’s life.
Still At The Audition Stage, Lewis Hamilton Reveals His Role In The Movie
So far, we know only a few details, but now that Hamilton has opened up more about the movie, a lot of other surprising details are out. Hamilton revealed that, at present, the shooting had not taken place. The makers are still selecting the cast members via auditions. Not only that, but Hamilton also revealed, “the production team is going through the recordings they have of potential ac tors who have done certain [relevant] scenes.”
When Lewis Hamilton visited the office and sat with the producer, Jerry Bruckheimer and Joe Kosinski, and Brad Pitt, he watched the audition recordings himself. Hamilton shared his views on the inputs that are required in the castings. However, in the meantime, the Briton did not even mistakenly take the names of the potential actors they were considering.
One of the duties of Lewis Hamilton involves making sure that the casting is diverse. “I want to make the movie in terms of having diversity and representation. I want it to be as Formula One should be in the future or should be now but will be in the future.” said the Mercedes superstar. The things that Hamilton changed in Formula One is really appreciable. He showed concerns about female mechanics in Formula One.
There are no female drivers to that point. Why? asks Hamilton, who would love to see a female driver soon.
Hamilton has revealed that the script is already out. And the team has gone through quite a few different iterations of it. However, they are also waiting for a rewrite, if possible.
