How Bullet Train became this summer’s biggest action movie

Director David Leitch had to be convinced to jump onboard Bullet Train. The new action movie sees Brad Pitt’s assassin Ladybug colliding with multiple colorful and quirky assassins after a simple job goes very wrong on a high-speed train bound for Tokyo – but it was almost the end of the line for Leitch before Bullet Train even started rolling .

“He almost didn’t do the movie! ‘How am I going to do great action? I’m stuck on this train!'” Recalls producer Kelly McCormick while sat down with Leitch for an interview in London.
