Brad Pitt Is Producing a Movie and Docuseries on the Isle of Man TT

Another racing film is in the works and Brad Pitt and Channing Tatum are along for the ride. 

Pitt, who’s set to star in Joseph Kosinski’s untitled Formula 1 film, is attached to another high-speed project on the famous Isle of Man TT. The 60-year-old actor‘s production company, Plan B Entertainment, has teamed up with Tatum’s Free Association to deliver both a feature-length film and a docuseries on the legendary motorsport spectacle, which is widely known as one of the oldest and deadliest circuits in the world, Variety reported.

Dating back to 1907, the two-week Isle of Man takes place each year on a small island in the middle of the Irish Sea. The road race happens on the TT Mountain Course that spans 37.7 miles with professional riders reaching speeds of over 200 mph. Since the competition began, the number of fatalities has surpassed 150.  

“We dare anyone to find more awe-inspiring people, or a more breathtakingly vibrant world than The Isle of Man TT,” Tatum and Free Association’s Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan said in a statement. “We’ve always been drawn to characters who push the edge of what’s possible, and this race is their Shangri-La. We’re deeply honored to be part of the creative dream team telling the story of this legendary event, and can’t wait to finally share this mythical sport we love with audiences all across the globe.”
