Joey shared that she had a great professional and personal learning experience working with the star, saying: “I learned a lot from Brad, some incredible personal life lessons. He’s been in the public eye for so long. It’s so weird to be in balance. Only a niche group knows exactly what it feels like. Brad was so kind in helping someone like me.”
Joey, who rose to fame for her role in the teen drama ‘Kissing Booth’, also shared her experience working on the action movie. “Bullet Train really is a larger-than-life movie that I can’t believe I got to be a part of. I’ve been acting for a long time, but I had this zooming out Hollywood moment of ‘Wow, this is insane. I’m in an action movie directed by David Leitch with Brad Pitt.’ Brad is absolutely hysterical in this movie,” she revealed.
Speaking of her character in the film, the actress shared, “I love my character Prince. She’s so bad and so crazy. I learned a lot about guns and just being a super cool killer lady. I’ve always been a bit of an action star in my bones.”
An adaptation of the internationally best-selling book, ‘Bullet Train’ by Kōtarō Isaka, the film will feature an all-star cast starring Brad Pitt, along with Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Andrew Koji, Bad Bunny, Hiroyuki Sanada and Sandra Bullock.
Director David Leitch of Deadpool 2 fame, the film will be released on August 5.
