According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brad Pitt could star in the movie adaption of A.J. Baime’s book "Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans".
With Tom Cruise already on board, "Go Like Hell" directed by Joseph Kosinski has all the ingredients to become a movie which motorsport fans will enjoy, especially those who have a soft spot for Le Mans. The movie will tell the story of the Ferrari vs Ford rivalry during the 60s Le Mans, as described in A.J. Baime's book.
Tom Cruise will play the role of Carroll Shelby while Brad Pitt's role is not known at this moment, but rumors suggest he was first approached about this movie when Michael Mann was in charge of directing it. Now that Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski has taken over, Brad Pitt has allegedly agreed to star in his first movie with Tom Cruise since 1994's "Interview With the Vampire."
According to IMDb, "Go Like Hell" is slated for a 2015 release.
