Brad Pitt to star in Tom Cruise's "Go Like Hell"?
Brad Pitt may star alongside Tom Cruise in 'Go Like Hell'.
The 'World War Z' actor is being eyed for a reunion with his 'Interview with the Vampire' co-star in 20th Century Fox's new racing movie, which will be directed by Joseph Kosinski, who directed Cruise in 'Oblivion'.
Pitt was attached to star in the project in 2009 when Michael Mann was on board as director, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and has remained interested in the film.
The movie will focus on the real-life rivalry between American car manufacturer Ford Motor Company and Italian car brand Ferrari, which culminated at the 1966 Le Mans race.
Cruise is set to play car designer Carroll Shelby in the feature, which was scripted by Jez and John-Henry Butterworth.
The movie is based on A.J. Baime's book, 'Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans'.
Pitt is currently putting together a sequel to his hit summer zombie film 'World War Z', which he produced and starred in.
The actor also has a brief role in awards favourite '12 Years a Slave'.
Cruise will soon begin shooting 'Mission: Impossible 5' and is also developing a sequel to his hit action thriller 'Jack Reacher'.
