Lewis Hamilton and Brad Pitt’s Formula 1 film will be fully integrated into the race weekend at Silverstone. Speaking to Formula 1 investors, chairman Stefano Domenicali announced that the sport is working closely with the film’s producers, although it may become “invasive” during the race weekend.
Besides Hamilton and Pitt, producer Jerry Bruckheimer is also involved in the project. The film will be directed by Joseph Kosinski, who also recently made Top Gun: Maverick. The team will have the full cooperation of Formula 1, Domenicali made clear, although the sport itself will of course take priority.
“We’re going to start the shooting in Silverstone very soon, and you will see it will be the first movie when basically, they will be within the racing event,” the F1 president explained, quoted by Racefans. “It will be quite invasive in terms of production, it’s something that we need to control in a way, but it will be another way of showing that F1 never stops.”
