Brad Pitt just revealed a storyline for a romantic comedy that he wanted to make but never did. This Hollywood heartthrob tried to make this rom-com with his “Bullet Train” co-star Sandra Bullock.
Pitt talked about this dream that didn’t come true while interviewing with British Vogue about his new genderless line of skincare products.
The reporter asked him to talk about this beauty line without making it “too QVC.”
That made Pitt quip that he “wouldn’t know how to do that, unless it was a comedy,” which led to a good story involving Bullock.
“Actually, Sandy (Sandra Bullock) and I did once try to develop a whole idea of a husband and wife team, who were QVC’s most successful salespeople, but we’re getting a divorce, we hate each other, and we’re taking it out on air as we sell things…” he said, laughing. “That’s as far as we got.”
That sounds like a winner, of course, anything these two icons did together would probably be a winner. But they have never played romantic leads with each other.
They came close in the film Bullock co-produced, “The Lost City.” Pitt was in the film and they seemed to have something of a love connection, but Sandra ended up with Channing Tatum.
These two seem to be friends in real life. Pitt said in an interview for the United Kingdom’s premiere of “Bullet Train” that Bullock was “an angel” to him.
“I can call her for anything — she will drop her holiday for me. Really,” he said. “‘Stop your holiday and put on your gown and come host a 1000 person event for me,’ and she will do it.”
Maybe it’s not too late for this QVC romcom…wonder what it would take to get these two back at the writing table to finish the process?
