Two weeks after he formally withdrew from the film, Denzel Washington is now back onboard the Tony Scott-directed runaway train drama “Unstoppable” for 20th Century Fox reports Variety.
First attached in April, Washington is once again set 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 project hit a speed bump when the studio insisted the budget be cut back to $90 million, with Washington to cut $4 million from his salary. Washington was looking elsewhere but his and Fox have reportedly found a way to compromise on the deal.
Pre-production on the film has resumed in Pittsburgh for filming to get underway in the Fall. Mark Bomback penned the script.
