The Sun claims that:

“Brad agreed that they would finish shoots booked in but has postponed planned production over the next two months.

“The cast and crew of Apex have been filming in Budapest (Hungary, central Europe) but Brad has called for the future dates to be put back, in solidarity with everyone striking.

“Postponing the production was a massive call, especially financially, but Brad has listened to the concerns of the people he works with and wants to show his support.”

Another source told Deadline that the crew was supposed to film at The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, also known as Spa, in Belgium this weekend, with the country’s real-life Grand Prix taking place on Sunday, but that this will no longer happen.

The next scheduled shooting dates are in November in Las Vegas, by which time everyone involved is hoping for a resolution to the current impasse between writers, actors, and studios.

Pitt is both starring in and producing the film, which he is co-producing with former world champion Lewis Hamilton. The team recently joined real-life Grand Prix teams at the British race at Silverstone in England, where Pitt attended the F1 drivers’ race briefing before taking to the track himself, reaching speeds of up to 150mph.
