Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock switched cameo roles this year, with Pitt appearing in Ballack’s $105 million romantic comedy The Lost City , while Ballack appeared in Pitt’s late-summer action film Bullet Train . But will they ever act together in a movie? It turns out they had been planning years before, developing a sitcom where they were going to play feuding ex-husbands on QVC. The Pitt-Bullock comedy never got beyond early development.
“Actually, Sandy [Sandra Bullock] and I once tried to develop this whole idea of a husband and wife team who were QVC’s most successful salespeople, but we’re getting divorced, we hate each other, and we’re airing it while we’re selling stuff,” Pete said recently Vogue UK. “That’s all we got.”
Pitt revealed Bullock’s lost project during an interview promoting Le Domaine, his new gender-neutral skincare line. The Oscar winner told Vogue that his skin is proof that Le Domaine works.
“I know there are new products almost every day that people are trying to launch,” Pete said, “but if I didn’t see a real difference visually on my skin, we wouldn’t bother [making it].”
Pitt recently headlined Sony’s “Bullet Train,” which has grossed $96 million in the U.S. since debuting in early August. The action tentpole grossed $222 million worldwide. Next up for Pitt is a starring role opposite Margot Robbie and Diego Calva in Babel, a new drama from Oscar winner Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, which is backed by Paramount. The film opens in select theaters on December 25.
