Review of Sony’s Bullet Train: Sandra Bullock Replaced Lady Gaga’s Role in Action Pic

After production had officially wrapped on Bullet Train last March, Collider brings word that acclaimed singer-actress Lady Gaga is no longer attached to star in Sony Pictures’ upcoming Brad Pitt-led action movie. Due to scheduling conflicts with Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci caused by the ongoing pandemic, the A Star is Born actress was forced to give up the role of Maria Beetle in Bullet Train.

Earlier this year, following Lady Gaga’s exit which wasn’t confirmed at the time, Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock had signed on to join the ensemble cast. However, like other previously confirmed cast members, Bullock’s role wasn’t initially revealed, but it was reportedly going to be a small role in the movie. As it turns out, the Miss Congeniality star was indeed cast to replace Lady Gaga for the role of Maria Beetle, who is the handler of Pitt’s character in the highly-anticipated action pic.
