Bullet Train is one of those films that sounds almost too good to be true. A hitman action flick directed by Hobbs & Shaw, Deadpool 2, and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch, it also features Brad Pitt in a genre he doesn’t tackle too often. And now there’s even more reason to keep this high on our anticipated list.
Deadline says Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the latest to join Bullet Train, which stars Pitt and the previously-announced Joey King. They would play three of four assassins aboard a speeding bullet train, but further details are unknown.
Taylor-Johnson is known mainly for his starring role in Kick-Ass, and for playing Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron. He was most recently seen in Tenet, and will reunite with director Matthew Vaughn for The King’s Man.
Filming on Bullet Train begins soon, so maybe we’ll get it next year? But first, there’s still one assassin slot left.
