No different movies have been made because the first, however Hollywood is nothing if not nostalgic, so it ought to be no shock to listen to that Steven Spielberg is taking a shot at a brand new “Bullitt” film.
Steve McQueen impressed a technology of stunt drivers together with his depiction of the San Francisco lawman and the film’s well-known chase scene. This time, Bradley Cooper will take the wheel. Selection reported that Warner Brothers was growing the movie and stated that the film could be fully totally different from the McQueen traditional. It’s anybody’s guess as to which vehicles we might see within the film, however there’s greater than a passing likelihood that Ford will cook dinner up a particular Mustang to commemorate the movie’s launch. The automaker created an upgraded automobile alongside the film within the late 1960s and launched a brand new model in 2008 with GT500-inspired touches.
