Pitt is very versatile actor and I know he can really bring the struggle of Steve on screen in a very effective manner

McQueen is a screen hero and vilain at the same time in his own right. I could imagine how Pitt will portray this controversial personality

McQueen was an avid racer of both motorcycles and cars. While he studied acting, he supported himself partly by competing in weekend motorcycle races and bought his first motorcycle with his winnings. He is recognized for performing many of his own stunts, especially the majority of the stunt driving during the high-speed chase scene in Bullitt.Additionally, McQueen designed and patented a bucket seat for race cars
