Original “Bullitt” the film was released in 1968, and Ford has kept the name alive with many Mustang released in the last 50 years. No other movies have been made since the first, but Hollywood is nothing if not nostalgic, so it’s no surprise to hear that. Steven Spielberg is shooting At first”Bullitt” movie.
Steve McQueen inspired a generation of stunt drivers with his portrayal of a San Francisco lawyer and the famous chase scene in the film. This time, Bradley Cooper will take the helm. Variety reports that Warner Brothers is developing the movie and says that the movie will be completely different from the McQueen classic. One can guess what cars we might see in the movie, but there’s a good chance Ford will build a special Mustang to celebrate the movie’s release. The automaker created an upgraded car along with the movie in the late 1960s and released a new version in 2008 with GT500-inspired accents.

It was revealed in 2018 Detroit auto show next to one of the original cars in the movie which has been hidden for decades. That car later Sold at auction for $3.74 million.
The next-generation S650 Mustang is due in 2024, and Ford hasn’t detailed any special editions other than the Dark Horse model, so we could see a New Bullitt – or (gasp) a Mustang Mach-E Bullitt – sometime soon.
