Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt may team up again, this time sans vampires.
The two mega-stars worked together in 1994’s Interview With a Vampire and may meet up again 20 years later, if 20th Century Fox can bring Pitt to a ’60s-era racing movie that already has Cruise signed on (along with Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski).
The movie, Go Like Hell, is based on A.J. Baime’s book, Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari an Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans. The story’s premise revolves around Henry Ford II’s push to turn former racer and current engineer Carroll Shelby (Cruise) into the leader of a new style of Ford company, which comes to a head when they battle Enzo Ferrari’s Italian company at the 1966 Le Mans race in France.
While the movie obviously plays off the drama of the feud, these specially made cars also provided plenty of danger and speed, common themes in movies, right?
Getting Pitt onboard, while not finalized, isn’t far-fetched. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he was set to star in a different version of the movie in 2009 with director Michael Mann. He has reportedly stayed in touch on the project and has a new script in hand.
