Brad Pitt Sought For Reunion With Tom Cruise In Racing Drama Go Like Hell

They haven't worked together in 20 years, but is an Interview With The Vampire reunion about to become a reality? It will if Joseph Kosinski has his way, according to THR, who report Brad Pitt is being courted to join Tom Cruise in the director's racing drama Go Like Hell.

Based on the book Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans by by A.J. Baime, the film will chronicle the rivalry between the American Ford Motor Company and the Italian conglomerate led by Enzo Ferrari in the 1960s, culminating in the 24 hour Le Mans race, the "most prestigious and dangerous race in the world." Cruise is attached to the role of Carroll Shelby, a car designer who worked for Ford.

Pitt and Cruise have somehow managed to not work together again for 20 years, but this project could be the one because Pitt has always shown an interest and was even attached to star in an earlier incarnation of the film when it was to be directed by Michael Mann. He's still interested and has even had talks with the new team about signing on, so it might be time to start dusting off the old Lestat/Louis fanfiction stash.
