ComingSoon.net talked exclusively to Denzel Washington and director Tony Scott about their new action-thriller The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, co-starring John Travolta, John Turturro, Luis Guzman, Michael Rispoli and James Gandolfini. It opens on Friday, June 12th.
In the remake of the 1974 film, Washington stars as New York City subway dispatcher Walter Garber, whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. Travolta stars as Ryder, the criminal mastermind who, as leader of a highly-armed gang of four, threatens to execute the train’s passengers unless a large ransom is paid within one hour. As the tension mounts beneath his feet, Garber employs his vast knowledge of the subway system in a battle to outwit Ryder and save the hostages. But there’s one riddle Garber can’t solve: even if the thieves get the money, how can they possibly escape?
