The movie adaptation of Go Like Hell already hasA-lister Tom Cruise in the fold and if recent reports are accurate, Cruise is set to be joined by another Hollywood heavyweight: Brad Pitt.
The two last co-starred in the 1994 movie Interview with a Vampire and the potential co-starring role will ignite a move that’s already being billed as a blockbuster adaptation of the A.J. Baime book that chronicled the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari during their glory years at Le Mans .
It’s already been reported that Cruise will be playing the role of Carroll Shelby in the movie with Joseph Kosinski sitting in the director’s chair. There’s been no mention of what role Pitt will play in the movie but if it’s any indication, it won’t come as a surprise if he stars as Ferrari’s very own patriarch, Enzo Ferrari.
It’ll be very interesting to see how the cast for Go Like Hell builds up. But with Cruise and possibly Pitt on board, it’s going to be one heck of a blockbuster.
