Unable to move forward: $140,000,000 movie starring Brad Pitt on hold as Lewis Hamilton provides update.

There is so much happening in the world of Formula 1 that it feels like it’s been a lifetime since we talked about the F1 movie. However, when something as big as a $140 million movie starring Brad Pitt becomes a part of F1, it can never truly be out of discussion. This is exactly why during an interview regarding his watch collaborations, Lewis Hamilton also gave us a quick update on the highly anticipated movie project. However, this is not a positive update, as the Brit confessed to being in a state of limbo after securing the project.

The man associated with Mercedes has taken action to expand his investments and plan for his post-F1 life. In October 2022, Hamilton’s production company, Dawn Apollo Films, was launched and secured the rights to produce an F1 movie for Apple. It’s not unexpected that Hamilton’s production company would be involved in this film, given its subject matter and Hamilton’s success in the sport.

After completing the F1 project, Hamilton is committed to furthering his investments in the film industry and growing Dawn Apollo as a successful business. However, in an interview with Watch Pro, the British racer admitted that he is currently unsure of his next steps.

“I am eager to bring something to life, which is why I established a production company. For our inaugural film, I secured a top-tier actor, Brad Pitt, for the lead role. Although I am unsure of what the future holds, I am currently immersing myself in scripts and collaborating with exceptional individuals. The entire experience feels unreal and I am beyond thrilled about it,” stated Hamilton.

It has been a great privilege to meet and work with Brad [Pitt], who is the star of this project,” disclosed Hamilton.

Joseph Kosinski, for instance, directed the highly acclaimed film Top Gun. We are collaborating on a project together. My responsibility is to ensure that it becomes the greatest racing movie ever made,” stated the producer of the F1 film.
