Joey King to Star Opposite Brad Pitt in 'Bullet Train' Movie!

Joey King has landed a lead role in the upcoming movie Bullet Train opposite Brad Pitt!

The 21-year-old actress is set to play an assassin in the upcoming film, which will be directed by Deadpool 2 and Hobbs & Shaw helmer David Leitch.

The film is based on the Japanese novel “Maria Beetle” and here is the synopsis, via Deadline: “Five assassins find themselves on a fast moving bullet train from Tokyo to Morioka with only a few stops in between. They discover their missions are not unrelated to each other. The question becomes who will make it off the train alive and what awaits them at the terminal station?”

The movie is set to begin production in Los Angeles in the fall.

Joey received an Emmy nomination last year for her work in the Hulu series The Act. Her latest movie, The Kissing Booth 2, was number one on Netflix for the past week.

Earlier this year, Joey revealed how she lost out on a role in one of Brad‘s previous movies. Now they’ll finally be able to work together!
