Man on the Train is a 2011 crime-drama film directed by Mary McGuckian, starring Donald Sutherland and Larry Mullen Jr. It is an English-language remake of the 2002 French film L'homme du train, which had been released in the US with the same title as the 2011 version.


An elderly professor (Sutherland) and a mysterious stranger (Mullen) whom the professor has invited to his house are each very envious of the life of the other.


Filmed in April 2010, it was shot "under the radar" over a 17-day period in the towns of Orangeville and Dundas, Ontario. Because of Mullen's fame as a member of the rock band U2, there was no publicity surrounding his participation in the project.[1][2]
