Sandra Bullock talks Brad Pitt in ‘Lost City’

When asked what Pitt brings to his role, Bullock, a producer on the film, jokes: “Not much. Not really much. I mean, what does he bring to any film he does?”

Kidding aside, she appreciates her fellow Oscar winner’s commitment to the project.

“The thing about Brad is he was supposed to be there for three days,” she says. “He’d just finished shooting. He was dead tired. He bulked up to do a three-day role. I had to ask him for a fourth day for free. He did it.

“You just realize he’s a movie star and a great actor for a reason: Because he works really, really hard. He brought a work ethic that was pretty astounding.”

The Lost City directors explain how they got Brad Pitt on board

The Lost City is a comedy adventure that harkens back to the glory days of fun blockbusters like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Romancing the Stone.

Centering on a sheltered author of romance novels (Sandra Bullock) who finds herself lost in the jungle with her hot Fabio-style book cover star (Channing Tatum) while outrunning baddies and trying to find treasure, The Lost City is directed by Aaron and Adam Nee. The brothers tell Total Film in the new issue of the magazine, featuring The Northman on the cover, that – while the project was an exciting prospect – they never expected to land a certain A-lister to play the supporting role of a mysterious gung-ho adventurer.

“Brad Pitt’s name came up early for this. But the role isn’t a cameo, he’s in a good chunk of the movie. We were like, ‘We’re never going to get Brad Pitt to do this,'” chuckles Adam. “And then Sandy did Bullet Train [with Pitt], she was pitching him the role and she and Brad share a hairdresser, Janine [Thompson]. Janine was saying to Brad, ‘How would you do your hair if you played this part? What would you do about this?’ It felt like she just started getting him excited about it. And it then suddenly became real – and we were sitting on a Zoom, and talking to him about the movie. Before we knew it, he was in the jungle.”

“Brad [Pitt] in this movie is hilarious,” said Tatum, 41. “If we ever do Jump Street 3, we have to — I’m telling you, he’s comic gold if you put him with the right character.”

A guest-starring spot on the original 21 Jump Street TV series was one of the first roles for Pitt, 58, who makes a cameo in Tatum and Sandra Bullock’s upcoming adventure comedy The Lost City.

The Lost City Trailer

Ancient treasure, a lost city, billionaire baddies — by the looks of the first trailer for The Lost City, Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum really have their hands full.

The film, directed by brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, also features Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Patti Harrison, Oscar Nunez, Bowen Yang, and a cameo by Brad Pitt.

Bullock and Tatum previously teased the cameo in an exclusive first look with EW, with the former revealing it’s a stunt-heavy part that steals the show.

“And we let him. He just came in, and he tore it up. He’s really funny,” she said of Pitt.

Added Tatum, “He came in and played a certain character that fits into this weird world, and just signed up for it completely and wholly. I’ve met him, but to get to work with him was a whole different thing. I couldn’t focus. It was really an out-of-body experience in a lot of ways.”

‘The Lost City’ Images Reveal Brad Pitt’s Cameo

The Lost City, formerly titled The Lost City of D, is set to be released in 2022. The film will follow the story of a reclusive romance writer Loretta Sage, played by Bullock, who gets caught up in a kidnapping attempt with her book’s cover model, played by Tatum. The story will swing into outlandish adventures, leaving Loretta to navigate her way through the thick of a jungle. Radcliffe rounds out the main trio playing Fairfax, an eccentric billionaire who orchestrates the abduction plot.

When discussing the romantic-comedy elements of the film with EW, Bullock brought up the ways in which The Lost City works to flip certain stereotypes on their head, saying, “That’s what’s so much fun about it, you can take old setups and easily make them new. And the fun thing about the male-female narrative is that now we can turn it on its ear because it’s no longer, ‘This is the woman’s role. This is the man’s role.’ You can mess with all of that and create a whole new dynamic. And that’s sort of what we did.”
