Episode 50: V for Vendetta (2005)

This week we discuss one of Mike’s favourites – 2005s V for Vendetta. A very violent venture veering via visionary vocations vis a vis versatile venust vixen Natalie Portman and vehement vorocious valiant Hugo Weaving. 

Season 2, Episode 23

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Director/Stunts: David Leitch

From: Bullet Train

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!

Where are we leaping to?

Casting: Lucinda Syson

To: Children of Men

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
