Brad Pitt pays attention to Sandra Bullock and says that he is like an angel to her, that he can always count on her to leave whatever she is doing. They then described the movie they were planning as two top QVC salespeople were taking their relationship off the sales floor and making their personal divorce public.

The other passengers on the train are not innocent people, but are littered with other killers (Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Hiroyuki Sanada). Sandra Bullock’s appearance was primarily as a phone voice instructing Pitt until she surprised audiences after the film’s climax.

Looking back, it is almost a tragedy that these two Hollywood superstars never came together for a romantic comedy. While QVC might sound weird and ridiculous to make a movie, Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock are on the short list of actors who can make it interesting. His personal experience with the subject matter would have brought realism to the characters which could have possibly made the film something special.
