Episode 49: Bullet Train (2022)

This week for Mike’s first of three leaps we jump on a Bullet Train for an action-packed adventure across Japan. Brad Pitt stars in this action packed ride while we watch and discuss and cast our judgement.

Season 2, Episode 22

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Casting: Mary Vernieu

From: Promising Young Woman

Chosen by:
Crew (Mike)
Film (Mike)

Next up is Mike taking us for three leaps. First with a very experienced casting person of over 300 films Mary Vernieu. With more than 300 films to choose from, many of them recent well received films, we leap to action blockbuster Bullet Train!

Where are we leaping to?

Director/Stunts: David Leitch

To: V For Vendetta

Chosen by:
Crew (Mike)
Film (Mike)

Mike leaps with Bullet Train director David Leitch who was assistant stunt coordinator and a stunt double in V for Vendetta. We have leapt with Leitch once before this season but the rules state we can re-leap with a leaper after a six film gap. Leitch has done stunts for 70 films, many of them great, so who know, maybe we will leap with him yet again in the future!
