Lewis Hamilton hired as film producer involving Brad Pitt hinting at life after F1 career

Lewis Hamilton has been hired as a producer to work on a new F1 film, which is set to be made by Apple Studios. The movie, which is yet to be given a title, will also star Hollywood royalty Brad Pitt as the main character.

Pitt will take on the role of a veteran driver who comes out of retirement to mentor a young racer as his team-mate. The 58-year-old is said to be a big motorsport fan and has attended a number of Grands Prix in the past as well as officially starting the 84th edition of the 24 Hours Of Le Mans race in 2016.

In addition to Hamilton and Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, the film will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, who co-produced the NASCAR action-drama Days of Thunder starring Tom Cruise and Chad Omen.

Meanwhile, renowned sports and media talent manager Penni Thow will be an executive producer. Hamilton and Thow already work together after the F1 superstar teamed up with the Canadian last year to help him build his Project 44 business
