Zazie Beetz Joins Action Flick ‘Bullet Train’ With Brad Pitt

Zazie Beetz has booked her ticket for the Bullet Train. Deadline reports she has joined Brad Pitt, Joey King, her Atlanta co-star Brian Tyree Henry, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Andrew Koji in the action flick directed by Hobbs & Shaw‘s David Leitch.

Is there ANY reason at all not to be excited over this movie?

Details on the plot are still being held tight, but we believe it involves a group of assassins aboard a bullet train. Leitch will oversee the script by Zak Olkewicz, which is based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kotaro Isaka.

This is just the latest in a string of high-profile projects for Beetz, which includes Deadpool 2, The Batman, and this year’s Sundance favorite Nine Days.
