It’s widely reported that Brad Pitt‘s Formula One movie project plans have been severly hampered with hours of footage already shot on location globally rendered unusable.
The new movie is to see the Hollywood veteran double up as both actor and film producer for the much anticipated project.
The film is yet to get an official title but is believed to go by Apex duly named as the team whose manager brings Pitt’s character back as a mentor for an up-and-coming star driver.
Shooting was stopped during the SAG-AFTRA strike while on location in Budapest. The end of the strike in Hollywood this week brought considerable changes in sponsorship deals.
Tech monolith Apple and other project backers are looking at tens of millions worth of lost footage.
At Silverstone, for example, the APXGP team got its own garage and did several laps as the cameras rolled.
