Unstoppable living up to it’s name!

Unstoppable living up to it’s name!

Denzel Washington is reboarding “Unstoppable” – the Tony Scott-directed Runaway Train thriller that derailed, albeit temporarily, a month ago or so due to financial reasons.

The Oscar Winner and 20th Century Fox have reached a compromise. The film is back on its fast track for a fall start, with pre-production under way in Pittsburgh, says Variety.
Washington has been attached since April to reteam with Scott and play a veteran engineer who jumps into a locomotive with a young conductor (Chris Pine of “Star Trek”) to stop an unmanned runaway train loaded with toxic cargo. The Mark Bomback script is based on true events.

Progress on the film slowed when Fox insisted that the budget be brought close to $90 million, which required salary concessions from the director and star. Sources said the studio asked Scott and Washington to shave $3 million and $4 million off their respective salaries. Washington declined and his WME agent Ed Limato began looking for other film jobs for his star’s fall slot.
