Brad Pitt to star in remake of Bullitt

Brad Pitt is said to star in the remake of the 1960’s classic, ‘Bullitt.’ Pitt will take the role of Lt. Frank Bullitt, originally played by Steve McQueen in the 1968 version. According to sources “Brad shares a lot of the same passions as Steve McQueen – including a love of motorbikes and fast cars – so it was a dream role for him.”

The 1968 movie is based around a detective hunting a hitman who killed his fellow officers. The movie was best known for featuring one of the best car chases in theater history as McQueen’s Mustang car speeds through San Francisco.

Pitt was originally sought out for the role since 2003 but the project has now been given the green light.

In the mean time, go see Transformers. We saw it this movie and if you’re a car buff, you’ll love every second of it.
