Now, reports suggest that Bullock is joining Pitt in his Sony assassin film `Bullet Train`. The two stars who ruled the 90s have been friends off-screen but have never collaborated professionally until now.

David Leitch, who is known for `Deadpool 2` and `Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw` will be helming this film.

The script has been re-written by Zak Olkewicz, will be overseen by Leitch. An adaptation of the popular Japanese book `Maria Beetle` by Kotaro Isaka, the movie centres on a group of hit-men and assassins with conflicting motives on a train in Tokyo. The tone of the project has been described as `Speed`, the 1994 Bullock action film set on a bus, meets Liam Neeson`s 2014 plane thriller `Non-Stop`.

An Oscar winner for her 2009 film `The Blind Side`, Bullock has joined a sprawling cast for the film which includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King, Zazie Beetz, Andrew Koji, and Michael Shannon.
