“Bullet Train,” the new action movie starring Brad Pitt, has been set by Sony to hit theaters on April 8, 2022.

“Deadpool 2” director David Leitch’s film also stars Joey King, Andrew Koji, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Benito A Martínez Ocasio and Sandra Bullock, and Sony intends to release it theatrically and in IMAX and large premium formats.

On Monday, Sony also set a release date for Kitao Sakurai’s comedy “Oh Hell No,” starring Jack Black and Ice Cube. That film will open on July 1, 2022.

As of now, “Bullet Train” opens on an already crowded weekend, as it’s also the date set for “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” and “The Northman” from director Robert Eggers. Disney as of now also has an untitled live action film set for that date.

And “Oh Hell No” is opening in the high-profile pre-Independence Day launch spot currently occupied by Universal’s animated sequel “Minions: The Rise of Gru.”

“Bullet Train” has a screenplay by Zak Olkewicz and is based on the book “Maria Beetle” by Kotaro Isaka. The producers are Kelly McCormick, David Leitch and Antoine Fuqua, and the executive producers are Ryosuke Saegusa, Yuma Terada, Brent O’Connor and Kat Samick.

“Bullet Train” follows a group of five assassins, each with their own motives but with something unexpected in common, who board a bullet train where chaos soon erupts.
