Brad Pitt has a love affair in High-speed trainthe comedy thriller that was in theaters recently.
Pitt’s assassin character Ladybug instantly falls in love with the high-tech smart toilet aboard the Japanese bullet train from the film. “I was like, we have to make a smart toilet,” Pitt told USA Today.
“It was 100% Brad,” said director David Leitch, who recalls being busy on set when an excited Pitt rushed over to him.
“(Pitt) kept saying ‘smart toilet’ and then ‘I need to play with a smart toilet!’ And then I was like, ‘Smart toilet!’ and was on the phone with the art department saying we need a smart toilet here tomorrow.”
“There are some beautiful gems in the script…And then there are some beautiful gems when Brad Pitt says ‘smart toilet’,” adds Leitch.
The art department hastily installed the modern toilets, and the effects teams made the system work like the real thing.
“I have to say, they faked it beautifully,” says Pitt, who spent time riffing with the various features – water spray, air drying – before shooting scenes of Ladybug discovering them as they they were hiding in the toilets of the train.
For a physical gag, smart toilets end up playing a major role in High-speed train. Pitt was so inspired that he came up with a line of anti-toilet paper for his Philosophy Killer.
“I tried to fit it in there, but it didn’t make the movie: ‘Toilet paper is such an outdated concept. I don’t know why we’re happy about it,'” says Pitt, who doesn’t can’t decide. on his favorite function. “The water feature is just a gift and then the little dry stuffed animal, I mean, what fun.” – USA Today/Tribune News Service
