The Race magazine recently published an intriguing image directly from the Silverstone circuit. In the photo, an F1 car appears to have crashed, but upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that this accident was staged for the film. There’s no one in the cockpit, and the crash was executed remotely to simulate a real racing incident.

The provisional title of the film is “Apex.” The plot remains sparse, but initial details suggest it will follow the story of a former F1 driver who returns to the track to mentor a young talent. Brad Pitt plays the lead role, with Damson Idris, Javier Bardem, Kerry Condon, Tobias Menzies, and Sarah Niles rounding out the cast. The film is already considered one of the most expensive ever made, with a budget exceeding $300 million. It will first hit theaters and later be available on the Apple TV+ streaming platform.

Lewis Hamilton has recently hit out at claims that Brad Pitt’s upcoming F1 movie has a staggering budget of $300 million. The seven-time world champion is not only starring in the film but also producing it. The high budget has raised eyebrows, considering it would make this movie one of the most expensive ever made. But fret not, there’s more to the story!

Brad Pitt’s F1 movie, potentially titled “Apex,” is co-produced by Hamilton and Jerry Bruckheimer, with Joseph Kosinski directing (yes, the same director behind the latest Top Gun movie). The plot revolves around a veteran driver (played by Pitt) who mentors a rising F1 star. Hamilton’s involvement ensures authenticity and appeals to the global F1 fanbase.

During filming, Hamilton took Pitt around a track in Los Angeles. However, things got a bit dicey when Hamilton nearly crashed the car into a wall! He described it as a “hair-raising moment” but praised Pitt’s knack for racing nuances . It seems even Hollywood stars can’t escape adrenaline-pumping close calls!
