Denzel Washington is Back on Unstoppable


Nearly two weeks after Denzel Washington formally withdrew from the Tony Scott-directed Unstoppable, the actor and 20th Century Fox have come to terms on a deal that will put the runaway train picture back on its fast track in the fall.

Variety says pre-production on the film has resumed in Pittsburgh.

Washington had been attached since April to reteam with Scott and play a veteran engineer who jumps into a locomotive with a young conductor (Star Trek‘s Chris Pine) to stop an unmanned runaway train loaded with toxic cargo.

The Mark Bomback script is based on true events.
