Brad Pitt has been a top-notch leading man since he was in high school and at the age of 58 he’s just getting started.
It was recently announced that the actor recently starred in the delightful rom-com The Lost City, is set to front the upcoming action movie Bullet Train, and will appear opposite Margot Robbie in Babylon in 2023.
However, despite her career in front of the camera seemingly still in full swing, Pitt has come forward to say that he may be hanging up his acting hat soon.
Pitt revealed that his career is nearing the end as he considers his acting career to be near its end.
“I consider myself on my last leg,” Pitt explained, “this last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?”
Pitt’s focus will be on producing for his production company Plan B. However, he may make an occasional foray into acting, as well.
Some of the upcoming films starring the star are a biopic of Marilyn Monroe, a horror film about a monster in space, and an action-comedy that will be directed by John Wick.
Pitt’s career will be truly coming to an end when he chooses to retire. It seems that Pitt’s role as a movie star is about done. His replacement? Quentin Tarantino. They’re both fantastic actors who deserve to be in the movies.
When Pitt does indeed choose to retire from his acting career, director Quentin Tarantino, who has previously worked with the actor on films such as Once upon a Time in Hollywood, and Inglourious Basterds, told GQ that “the world will be losing one of the last remaining big screen movie stars.”
“It’s just a different breed of man.” And frankly, “I don’t think you can describe exactly what that is because it’s like describing star shine,” he said.
“I noticed it when we were doing Inglourious Basterds” he said. When Brad was in the shot, “I didn’t feel like I was looking through the viewfinder of the camera,” he told GQ. And adding that “I felt like I was watching a movie. Just his presence in the four walls of the frame created that impression.”
And Currently, he is will be starring in David Leitch’s Bullet Train and Damien Chazelle’s Babylon opposite Margot Robbie, Variety reported.
Both the films are set to release this year. While Bullet Train is slated to release in the theatres on August 5, while Babylon would hit the screens on December 25.
