The movie, which has yet to be given a title, will see Pitt cast as a driver who comes out of retirement to mentor a young racer as his team-mate.

Top Gun: Maverick and Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is believed to be heading the project.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who also co-produced the NASCAR action-drama Days of Thunder starring Tom Cruise, is said to be producing alongside Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment company.

The Hollywood film comes after the 2013 hit-movie Rush starring Chris Hemsworth as James Hunt and Daniel Bruhl as Niki Lauda.

F1 has also been riding on a wave of the back of a hugely successful fly-on-the-wall Netflix’s docuseries Drive to Survive.

Pitt is a huge motorsports fan and had previously been part of a project that resulted in the Matt Damon and Christian Bale film, Ford v Ferrari movie that grossed over £200million.
