Brad Pitt Reveals Which Martial Arts Icon Inspired His Bullet Train Action Scenes

Ahead of ‘Bullet Train’ cinematic debut, Brad Pitt spoke to Entertainment tonight dated August 2, 2022 on a couple of topics. Discussing his passion for pottery during the COVID-19 lockdown, he touched on how the action scenes played out in High Speed ‚Äč‚ÄčTrain. As it turns out, their mix of action and comedy came directly from the work of legendary action star Jackie Chan, who became famous decades ago for martial arts films that carried a similar tone.

“We’re always talking about Jackie Chan, how much we love Jackie Chan,” Pitt said, calling Chan the fighting equivalent of Charlie Chaplin for how he was a master at making audiences laugh by believably kicking the bad guys. He also praised the Battle of the Bronx and Rush Hour star for everything he has done in front of the camera throughout his remarkable career. “To do something like that, with comedy in the fights, I’ve never done that before,” Pitt concluded.

As if it couldn’t be more intriguing, Brad Pitt reveals that Bullet Train was partially influenced by showbiz icon Jackie Chan. If you’re a fan of action, comedy, or both, this movie is one you won’t want to miss.
