before The actors’ strike beganThe “Fight Club” actor has been hard at work filming and producing the new Formula 1 movie, which… He has Lewis Hamilton on board As a producer to try to make it as realistic as possible. After being offered garage space at Silverstone in the UK and in Hungary to film, footage for the project is now under threat, according to Report from independent.

after Resuming work on the film After the SAG-AFTRA strike, it emerged that some “hours of footage worth millions” could now be cancelled. the independent Reports:

But despite the conclusion of the actors’ strike, which saw SAG-AFTRA protest contractual terms relating to royalties and the use of artificial intelligence, it is believed the film’s sponsorship deals have been forced to change, meaning its release has been halted.

This means that all pre-recorded footage is no longer permitted, which will make Pitt, Idris and director Kosinski’s time at Silverstone a waste.

So, while some shots with outdated sponsors may end up in the cutting room, I’m sure those smart people at Apple can come up with some movie magic to keep the brand on track.
