Oscar-winner Will Smith might be one of Lewis Hamilton’s biggest fans but he’s yet to be given a role in the Formula 1 star’s new film.
The Mercedes star’s production company, Dawn Apollo films, are working with Apple to make the movie, which is set to star Brad Pitt.
Plenty of people, including Hamilton, are excited about the project.
“I have such high hopes for it,” he said last year.
“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.”
But so far no call has gone into Smith, who joked he might need to get into shape if one does come.
“I haven’t been asked yet but I would love to,” Smith to Sky Sports prior to the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix.
“I might have to work on this gut though, it doesn’t fit in the car too well.”

Don’t worry though, Hamilton isn’t planning on giving up driving for acting in the film.
“I don’t plan to be in it, no,” he admitted.
Although he conceded he may well be used to create the driving scenes.
Hamilton added: “It’s going to take us drivers to be involved in [filming the on-track action]. But we’re not actors … We don’t want this movie to be c***, which is probably why I’m not going to be part of it also.”
