Lady Gaga tapped to perform with Brad Pitt in hitman movie Bullet Train

Lady Gaga has been hired to co-star with Brad Pitt in the upcoming hitman movie Bullet Train, based on a Japanese mystery novel.

The 34-year-old singer received an Oscar nomination for best actress for her 2018 remake of A Star Is Born, directed by lead actor Bradley Cooper.

Now the blonde bombshell returns to the silver screen to be directed by David Leitch, Collider unveiled this Thursday.

Gaga’s casting went public a day later The Hollywood Reporter broke news that two-time Oscar nominee Michael Shannon will be starring in the film.

Hero actor Masi Oka – who was born in Tokyo where the bullet train in the novel departs – was revealed by Deadline to be in the cast.

Only last week Variety said Atlanta star Zazie Beetz, who directed David Leitch in Deadpool 2, was part of the ensemble.

Bullet Train is an adaptation of Kotaro Isaka’s novel Maria Beetle, and the film will apparently keep the book’s Japanese setting.

As the title suggests, the film takes place on a bullet train that happens to host five hitmen with mysteriously interlocking objectives.

Although Brad plays a hitman nicknamed Ladybug, it is not yet known who Gaga’s character is, although a Collider source said she is not a protagonist.

Brad’s casting was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter early July, a month after David Leitch was revealed to be managing the position.

A month later The Hollywood Reporter said Joey King of The Kissing Booth fame was ‘in talks’ for a role that People said was one of the hitmen.
