Last Passenger is written and directed by Omid Nooshin and produced by Ado Yoshizaki Cassuto and Zack Winfield. It is a claustrophobic suspense thriller in the Hitchcockian-Spielberg tradition of the everyday man thrust into an extraordinary situation. The film has a relentless momentum and genuine heart to get audience pulses racing - at 100 miles per hour.
In order to realise their ambitions for the project, the director and producers had to think of innovative ways to secure the backing they needed. The answer was to produce an incredible ‘dummy’ trailer that captured the suspense and action of the film – and they did so for a mere £500. On the back of this trailer, Pathé, which had approached the team to handle worldwide sales for the film was able to secure nine territories including Russia, Brazil, Turkey, Portugal and Indonesia at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
