Bad Bunny Talks Filming ‘Bullet Train’ Fight Scenes With Brad Pitt

In an interview with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe, the reggaeton hitmaker talked about co-starring with Brad Pitt in the upcoming assassin action-thriller “Bullet Train”.

“But it is something that I love. I love to put something new to do,” the artist said.
