U2 are taking some time off before gearing up their 360 World Tour again later this year, and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. recently found himself in rural Ontario to shoot a film called Man On The Train.

Work on the film reportedly began on April 19. According to popular fan site atu2.com, Mullen is playing a bank robber in the film, which is being shot in Orangeville, Ont. Man On The Train also stars Donald Sutherland (M*A*S*HNational Lampoon's Animal House) and Graham Greene (Dances With WolvesThe Red Green Show).

The site and the Orangeville Banner report that security was heightened at various locations when word leaked about Mullen's presence. A series of photos are also available here with Mullen sporting a goatee.

Meanwhile, popgoesthenews also featured additional photos of a scene with Mullen running out of a bank brandishing a gun.

Man On The Train is reportedly a remake of a 2002 French film and is being directed by Mary McGuckian (Inconceivable). There's no word on when the film will be released.

U2 will release a live DVD, U2 360 At The Rose Bowl, on June 7 in Europe and June 3 in the U.S. That latter date the same day the band kick off their North American leg in Salt Lake City.
