“I consider myself at my last stretch,” the actor told GQ. (opens in a new tab)“This last semester or quarter. What will this section be? And how do I want to design that?”
Pitt recently had a small but scene-stealing role in The Lost City opposite Channing Tatum, Sandra Bullock and Daniel Radcliffe. Next, he can be seen on the John Wick-esque bullet train, which features a cast including Zazie Beetz, Joey King, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, and Hiroyuki Sanada. Beyond that, Pitt will star as John Gilbert in Damien Chazelle’s Babylon and star in Formula One, the upcoming film from Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski.
In addition to acting, Pitt also runs a production company called Plan B Entertainment, which this year is releasing the upcoming Netflix film Blonde, starring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe, as well as an adaptation of Miriam Toews’ book Women Talking, which focuses on Mennonite women uniting against the men in their community who have been sexually assaulting them in their sleep. “It’s as profound a movie as any that’s been made in this decade,” Pitt told GQ of the film. The cast of Talking Women includes Jessie Buckley, Rooney Mara, Frances McDormand and Ben Whishaw.
