From TalkSport: “Lewis Hamilton has been hired as a consultant to help Brad Pitt in a new Formula 1 film.
Apple studios confirmed in June that it will make the, as yet untitled, film with Pitt in the leading role.
Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski was also confirmed as part of the project.
Seven-time F1 champion Hamilton had been confirmed as an executive producer, but will also have a bigger role.
The Sun report the 37-year-old has agreed to serve as a consultant on set in order to teach Pitt all he needs to know about motorsport.
A source told The Sun: “This is one of those films where everything just seems to be in the right place at the right time. “F1 is obviously huge, but Brad is totally the right man for this role. Joseph couldn’t be hotter at the moment thanks to the new Top Gun movie and Lewis is excited at the thought of a new experience. “It’s perfect. They’re all so up for it.””
