Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock traded guest spots this year, with Pitt appearing in Bullock’s $105 million romantic comedy The Lost City and Bullock appearing in Pitt’s late-summer action tentpole Bullet Train. But would the two ever direct a film together? It turns out that years ago they had planned to develop a comedy where they would play feuding ex-spouses on QVC. The Pitt-Bullock comedy never got past early development.
“Actually, Sandy [Sandra Bullock] and I once tried to come up with a whole idea of a husband and wife team who were QVC’s most successful sellers, but we’re getting divorced, we hate each other and we’re getting it on the air while we’re selling things” , Pitt recently told Vogue UK. “We’ve come this far.”
Pitt revealed the lost Bullock project during an interview promoting Le Domaine, his new line of genderless skincare products. The Oscar winner told Vogue that his skin is proof that Le Domaine works.
“I know people are trying to launch new products almost every day,” Pitt said, “but if I hadn’t seen a real visual difference in my skin, we wouldn’t have bothered.” [making it].”
Pitt recently headlined Sony’s “Bullet Train,” which has grossed $96 million in the US since its debut in early August. The Tentpole campaign raised $222 million worldwide. Pitt is next up for a starring role alongside Margot Robbie and Diego Calva in Babylon, the new Paramount-supported drama from La La Land Oscar winner Damian Chazelle. The film opens in selected cinemas on December 25th.
