Woody Harrelson Catches Trans-Siberian

Woody Harrelson has booked his ticket aboard Machinist director Brad Anderson’s next film, Trans-Siberian.

Samantha Morton, Ben Kingsley, Kate Mara and Spanish star Eduardo Noriega have also all been cast in the story of a couple (Harrelson and Morton) who meet another pair while travelling on the titular train shuttling between China and Moscow. What looks like a happy holiday for all turns into a nightmare chase loaded with double-crossing and bloody murder as no one is quite what they seem. Kingsley’s role is the Russian police officer hunting them all down.

Anderson stokes the directing fires nest month in Beijing and then Russia.

Your Comments

Just watched this - Fucking brilliant movie!!
Ben Kingsley is amazing. Really had me on the edge of my seat at times, incredibly tense, Hitchcock would have been proud with this. More

WTF !!
Loved the Machinist. Morton is a great actress so why ruin this with Harrelson ? And Kingsley ? It must be 'Feel Sorry for the Has-Been actor month" More
