Studios and streamers are putting the pedal to the metal in hopes of snagging Brad Pitt's newest film project.
The 57-year-old Oscar winner is attached to star in an untitled 'racing' film to be helmed by Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski, according to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.
Thanks to Pitt's perennial popularity and Kosinski's high-profile Tom Cruise–starring sequel, film studios and streamers are now duking it out in a bidding war for the rights to the project.

Kruger has a long list of credits ranging from modern classic horror films like The Ring to multiple Transformers flicks, Tim Burton's Dumbo and Kosinski's Top Gun sequel.
Sources told the publication that heavy hitters MGM, Paramount, Sony and Universal are all vying for the film.
They're also competing with some of the most high-profile streaming services, including Amazon, Apple TV+ and Netflix.
