Will Smith might not join Brad Pitt and Lewis Hamilton’s Formula One movie. For the unversed, seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton has geared up to turn producer with his upcoming film, which he says will be the ‘greatest racing movie ever’.

In October last year, Hamilton said, "I have such high hopes for it. I know we're going to make the best racing movie that's ever existed, both visually, and we're going to work on making sure we pull on the heartstrings of all those fans."

Will Smith in Lewis Hamilton’s movie?

Now, Oscar-winner Will Smith, who is also a Lewis Hamilton fan, expressed that he would love to star in the film. Talking to Sky Sports, before the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, Smith said, “I haven’t been asked yet but I would love to.” Adding further, he said, “I might have to work on this gut though, it doesn’t fit in the car too well.”

Looks like fans would have to wait to find out if Will Smith gets an offer to star in Hamilton’s film.

However, the F1 champion has made it clear that he is not going to turn actor in the movie. Hamilton shared that the drivers will be involved in the filming of the on-track action, however, he added, that they are not actors, which is why he is most probably a part of the movie as well.
