Fans are eagerly waiting to see their favorite actor Brad Pitt in his upcoming film Bullet Train. Reports have it that the Hollywood heartthrob is into a strict regimen for building up his muscles for the new movie.

Who can forget Pitt’s chiseled look in the blockbuster film Fight Club in 1999? It is now being reported that the Hollywood A-lister is trying to be in top shape for the new film Bullet Train

The 57-year-old is playing the role of Ladybug, a knife-wielding hitman in the film. According to a source, the actor is now gearing up for “rewiring” his physique for the movie, which is expected to be packed with action scenes. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star is also, reportedly, learning to the knife, kick, and punch fight, according to Daily Mirror

While the actor did not have to do this sort of retraining for years, it could be risky for him at this stage. After all, it is being said that he wants to do his action sequences for the film. 

The role demands him to indulge in cardio, yoga, weight training, and stretching, and he is pretty serious about mastering these skills. Sources claim that it is not just about how he looks, but he needs to have an athletic body for the movie. 

Meanwhile, Brad Pitt flaunted his new body just last week while he was snapped vacationing with his close rocker friend Flea in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Pitt seemed to be having a great time with the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist. The actor went shirtless and also flaunted his tattoos during snorkeling, according to PINKVILLA.  

A minimum of seven tattoos was visible on the Troy actor’s back. A tattoo featuring Sanskrit writing was also seen on the actor’s back. Many pictures of the Hollywood heartthrob were shared on a public domain where he donned snorkeling gear. 

The upcoming movie revolves around a team of assassins who have all boarded a train in Tokyo. The action-thriller movie is based on a book by Maria Beetle. 

It was previously reported by Us Weekly that Pitt was planning to spend Christmas with three of his kids- Knox, Vivienne, and Shiloh. The report mentioned that Hollywood A-lister could be spending Christmas Eve with these three children. 

Other reports had also suggested that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had initially planned to enjoy the holidays together with their kids. However, it seems the plan did not materialize in the end. The actress and her former husband share equal responsibility for the drama to continue, according to a source.
