Dir: Jonathan Lynn
Starring: Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt
An ageing hitman attempts to retire, only for a beautiful thief to change his plans
This black comedy was a remake of the 1993 French comedy Cible émouvante (Wild Target) and has an opening shot of Bill Nighy walking across Blackfriars Bridge as a Class 465 ‘Networker’ EMU crosses St. Paul’s Bridge behind. There are also some brief glimpses of Docklands Light Railway trains through the back window of a Mini, and a pleasing view of the frontage to Fenchurch Street station.
