Episode 51: Children of Men (2006)

This week we leap one year into the future from 2005’s V for Vendetta to another favourite of Mike’s – 2006’s Children of Men. We leapt here with casting person Lucinda Syson.  

Season 2, Episode 24

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Casting: Lucinda Syson

From: V for Vendetta

Chosen by:
Crew (Mike)
Film (Mike)

Yet again we leap with a casting person, this time to Mike’s third pick – another of his favourites Children of Men. Lucinda who casted this film has also done casting for other great films such as The Dark Knight, Gravity and Ever After.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Julianne Moore

To: The Fugitive

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Scott)

For Scott’s first of three we leap with the always amazing Julianne Moore – to a film with one of her smaller roles – The Fugitive. Why we would leap here with her rather than any of her many better films we do not know. We suspect Scott has a plan to leap to something better from here…
