Variety is reporting director Tony Scott has lined up his follow-up project to this summer’s John Travolta and Denzel Washington remake The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 and he isn’t leaving the tracks any time soon.
Pelham involves a heist taking place on the subway beneath the streets of New York City and Scott’s new film, titled Unstoppable, also boasts a similar set piece as it involves an unmanned runaway train that is carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals. An engineer and his conductor find themselves in a race against time. Sounds like it could almost be called Speed 3.
The film is set up at 20th Century Fox from a script penned by Mark Bomback who is working with Scott to get the picture in shape to be shot later this year.
As for The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, that will hit theaters on June 12 and I just added a few new stills to the gallery right here and you can check out the trailer just above in this article.
