Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is in talks to board Unstoppable, a 20th Century Fox drama about a runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals.
Variety says the drama, written by Live Free or Die Hard screenwriter Mark Bomback, pits an engineer and his conductor in a race against time. They’re chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town.
Julie Yorn is producing for Firm Films, along with Mimi Rogers. Chris Ciaffa is executive producing.
