Lady Gaga Exited 'Bullet Train' Due To 'House Of Gucci'

Many are excited to see Lady Gaga‘s return to acting with the Ridley Scott crime drama “House of Gucci,” seeing her star alongside Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jared Leto, and others. However, it looks like she had to drop out of another film to make it as Collider reports that she had a scheduling conflict and couldn’t make Brad Pitt‘s upcoming action film “Bullet Train” helmed by director David Leitch (“John Wick,” “Atomic Blonde,” “Hobbs & Shaw,” “Deadpool 2“).

They are reporting that Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock (“Speed,” “Gravity”) took over the role from Lady Gaga and plays Ladybug’s (Pitt) handler Maria Beetle. It’s certainly interesting to see how in-demand Gaga is after her Oscar-nomination for “A Star Is Born” and could mean that her acting career won’t be simply a side gig for the award-winning musician.

Collider also first reported on Lady Gaga’s involvement, and their update on her exit is certainly appreciated.

The rest of the cast consists of Joey King, Andrew Koji, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Karen Fukuhara, Brian Tyree Henry, Hiroyuki Sanada, Logan Lerman, Masi Oka, Zazie Beetz, and rapper Bad Bunny.

Pitt plays an assassin, the aforementioned Ladybug, traveling on a Japanese bullet train only to encounter waves of killers and leading to close quarters action scenes, which co-star Andrew Koji called “claustrophobic” to shoot during a “Snake Eyes” interview with Collider.

Director David Leitch is best known for his inventive action sequences and slick visuals, so we expect that the upcoming film will be a feast for the eyes and action fans.

“House of Gucci” will be heading to theaters on November 24.
