Brad Pitt Courted Anew for Tom Cruise's Car Racing Drama 'Go Like Hell'


If the deal is finalized, the Ford and Ferrari movie will mark the first reunion between the 'Interview with the Vampire' co-stars.

It looks like a reunion between Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise is happening. The Hollywood Reporter learns that the "World War Z" actor is in a new negotiation to star in "Go Like Hell", a movie about real-life rivalry between Ford and Ferrari.

Pitt was actually attached to star in the true-story drama when it was planned as a directing vehicle for Michael Mann in 2009. The movie now has a new crew with Joseph Kosinski ("Oblivion") serving as the helmer and Cruise landing one of the main roles.

But the "Moneyball" star remains interested and is believed to have met the movie's new team. If he is signed on, it will be his first on-screen reunion with the "Jack Reacher" actor since their pairing in 1994's "Interview with Vampire".

Based on A.J. Baime's book, it revolves around Ford and Ferrari's battle for dominance in the sports car marketplace which led to Ford challenging Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans race using a car designed by Carroll Shelby. Jez and John-Henry Butterworth are writing a new draft for the script. Cruise is attached to play Shelby.
