'The Kissing Booth's' Joey King has been cast alongside Hollywood royalty, Brad Pitt, in 'Bullet Train' so when will it be released and what is it about?
The Kissing Booth actress Joey King's career is going from strength to strength as she's in talks to star alongside Brad Pitt in upcoming action-thriller Bullet Train and her fans are loving seeing the 21-year-old killing it in the industry!
The film is based on the Japanese novel 'Maria Beetle' by best-selling author Kotaro Isakasees and sees a 'handful of assassins ending up on the same train with seemingly disconnected (but potentially connected) missions'.
Although there isn't a whole lot more information about the upcoming flick right now, production is said to be starting shortly, so it could be a 2021 or 2022 release- and it will be Joey's first 'action' role in her long career.
Joey, who started acting as a young child, has been nominated for an Emmy for her role of Gypsy in The Act, and the second instalment of The Kissing Booth recently hit Netflix and has gone down a storm with fans who have been desperate for the second movie since the first was released in 2018.
Fans are loving seeing their favourite star do so well, with one writing on Twitter: "Joey King will be on a movie together with Brad Pitt? AS AN ASSASSIN?"
"THE KISSING BOOTH franchise just keeps on winning, don't they?"
