Transsiberian (2008) Poster



Transsiberian (2008) had the misfortune of opening on the same weekend as The Dark Knight (2008), the second biggest film in history.
Emily Mortimer can speak Russian in real life.
Lithuania stands in for Siberia.
When Emily Mortimer was approached about appearing in the film, she had only 24 hours to make a decision on the script. Not being familiar with Brad Anderson's previous works, she said yes immediately after reading the script.
Among the references that Brad Anderson drew on were the films North by Northwest (1959), Strangers on a Train (1951), The Lady Vanishes (1938), Runaway Train (1985) and Dead Calm (1989) and the book "Crime and Punishment".
The film was partly inspired from director Brad Anderson's youth when he did in fact ride the Transsiberian Express.
Ben Kingsley was director Brad Anderson's first choice for the role.
