It’s our first look at the trailer for Donald Sutherland’s next major motion picture - MAN ON A TRAIN.

Donald Sutherland with Larry Mullen Jr. MAN ON A TRAINThe award winning New Brunswick native stars with U2 Drummer Larry Mullen Jr in the English-language remake of Patrice Leconte's award-winning French film of the same name.

“A mysterious criminal (Mullen Jr.) rolls into a small town planning to knock off the local bank, assuming it will go off without a hitch. But when he encounters a retired poetry professor (Sutherland), his plans take an unlikely turn.

As the two men talk, a bond forms between these two polar opposites, and surprising moments of humor and compassion emerge. As they begin to understand each other more, they each examine the choices they’ve made in their lives; secretly longing to live the type of lifestyle the other man has lived, based on the desire to escape their own”.

The film premiered earlier this year in Cannes and is part of the Tribeca Film Festival being released on VOD platforms with a limited theatrical release scheduled for some time after October 28, 2011.  Stay tuned for more on that.
