Brad Pitt has halted filming on his Formula One movie, due to the SAG-AFTRA strike.
The 59-year-old actor and producer had been working on ‘Apex’ with Damson Idris, Kerry Condon, Tobias Menzies, Lewis Hamilton and Javier Bardem for Apple TV but after talks with his cast and crew, Brad decided to call a halt to filming in order to show solidarity with the striking actors.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Brad is arguably one of the nicest guys in Hollywood and this move seals that reputation.
“He has been filming ‘Apex’, his new Formula One film, for the past few weeks but he was privy to a number of conversations with cast and crew about their feelings over the SAG strike.
“Brad agreed that they would finish shoots booked in but has postponed planned production over the next two months.
“The cast and crew of ‘Apex’ have been filming in Budapest but Brad has called for the future dates to be put back, in solidarity with everyone striking.
“Everyone has been informed that there will be a two-month hiatus now.
