Bullet Train Director Reveals Lady Gaga Dropped Out Because Of House Of Gucci


High-speed trainThe director of revealed that Lady Gaga left the film to pursue Gucci House. David Leitch spoke to EW about the whole situation during a recent interview. After all, High-speed train is not that far. But, unfortunately, Gaga will not be there because of her engagement in the Ridley Scott film. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and the director totally understood that. A funny thing about High-speed train that’s how many stars they managed to pack into this Brad Pitt vehicle. Honestly, she’s not even the only pop star on the train with Bad Bunny in the cast. Still, having two overlapping projects of this size means you have to end up picking one. While the critical reception of Gucci House wasn’t exactly amazing, fans appreciated the craziness of the concept. Gaga was fully invested in her role and it became a cult movie night favorite. However, box office prospects weren’t exactly what the studio was looking for.

“It all really came down to his schedule with the Ridley [Scott] movie,” Leitch explained. “There were some short talks and then it’s not going to work out because she was getting ready for the Ridley movie. [House of] Gucci. They shot right in front of us and overlapped with us and it really didn’t work.”

Director Greg Rementer told Vulture that the action in High-speed train there is nothing to sneeze at. Part of the reason for this breathtaking pace is the stars of this film. “Brad did 95% of his physical stunts – the fights,” Rementer said. “He’s like a born athlete. He really got into it!…I’ve never done so many huge actors in a feature film where they all excelled in the physical movement of our training. So Brad , Brian, Michael Shannon, Hiroyuki Sonada, Andrew Koji – who was already a stud in terms of where he comes from with the show ‘Warrior’ – all of these actors have stepped out of the action and done a lot of their [own] thing.”

This is how Sony describes High-speed train before he hits the train station: “An original cinematic event, Bullet Train is a fun and wacky action-thriller from Deadpool 2 director David Leitch. Japan today. Getting back to work is never as easy as you think… especially with the world’s deadliest assassins on board. Take a ride with Brad Pitt in #BulletTrainMovie, exclusively in theaters on August 5.”
