The untitled Formula One racing movie produced by Lewis Hamilton and Brad Pitt for Apple has already exceeded a budget of $300 million without a release date or title announced, facing production delays and footage deletions due to SAG-AFTRA strikes.


– ‣ The movie produced by Lewis Hamilton and Brad Pitt has already exceeded a budget of $300 million, placing it near the top 10 most expensive movies ever made.
– ‣ Production delays and challenges, including the SAG-AFTRA strikes and the need to delete footage filmed at Imola and Silverstone, have contributed to the escalating costs.
– ‣ Despite the significant investment, the movie, which revolves around the fictional Apex F1 team, lacks both a release date and a title.
– ‣ In contrast, Daniel Ricciardo‘s project “Downforce” has received a pilot order from Hulu, while Netflix has released a teaser for a documentary series about Ayrton Senna.

So, get this: Lewis Hamilton and Brad Pitt are cooking up a movie, right? And guess what? They haven’t even dropped a release date yet, but bam! The budget’s already blown past the $300 million mark. Crazy, huh? That’s like, almost sneaking into the VIP club of the top 10 most expensive movies ever made. And you know what? The price tag’s probably gonna keep climbing.

Now, let’s dive a bit deeper. Puck spilled the beans that this Hamilton-Pitt blockbuster, starring the one and only Damson Idris, is racking up the bills faster than a Formula 1 car on the final lap. Produced for Apple by a duo of legends – a seven-time world champ and a Hollywood icon – it’s had its fair share of drama. Think Hollywood strikes and scrapped scenes from iconic tracks like Imola and Silverstone. Talk about a bumpy ride, eh?

Oh, and here’s a kicker: they haven’t even settled on a name for this beast. It’s like that one friend who can’t decide what to order at a restaurant. Over on IMDb, it’s just chilling there as “Untitled Formula One Racing Movie.” Original, right?

Switching gears for a sec…

Ricciardo’s project gets pilot

Meanwhile, in another corner of the racing world, Daniel Ricciardo’s series “Downforce” (yep, that’s just a placeholder name) just got the green light for a pilot episode from Hulu. Ricciardo’s not just racing on tracks now; he’s executive producing. And in case you missed it, Netflix dropped a teaser for a docuseries on Ayrton Senna not too long ago.

So, yeah, the racing scene’s hitting the big and small screens in a big way. Buckle up, folks. It’s gonna be one heck of a ride.
