Sony Picture’s upcoming movie, Bullet Train, based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle, is set to star Joey King and Brad Pitt.

King will be showcasing her acting talent in this action-thriller movie, which will be her most heavy-action role to be cast in so far in her career. Sony is keeping the majority of the details under wraps, but it will be directed by David Leitch and the script is written by Zak Olkewicz. There is also no set date for production yet.

So far we know King will play a teenage assassin and is the only woman out of the four main leads. She will work alongside Hollywood legend, Brad Pitt, and we can only imagine what other famous actors will fill the remaining roles.

King shared her great news in her Instagram post shown below.

King received an Emmy nomination for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for the Hulu miniseries The Act in 2019.

This is me in South Africa on my way to set in the car live steaming The Emmy nominations announcement from the hotspot on my phone also known as the best moment in the world. My work on The Act was the most fulfilling and challenging work I’ve gotten to do as an actress thus far. To be nominated for an Emmy in a category with such INCREDIBLE nominees by my side, especially Patricia is the most surreal feeling. I haven’t stopped crying. Gettin to call Patricia right after and share this moment with her is something I’ll never forget. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, there’s so many people who are behind The Act that I couldn’t have done this without and I can’t wait to call all of them!!!! OH MY GOD I CANT BELIEVE IM NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY

King has been a remarkable actress since she was young, playing Selena Gomez’s little sister in the comedy Ramona and Beezus. We are so happy for her and all she has accomplished throughout the years.
