was set to star in a new movie called Unstoppable
, alongside Chris Pine
of Star Trek
fame. However, due to budget issues all production has stopped.
Fox is claiming budget issues have stalled production on the movie, which was still in the conceptual stages. Washington and "Star Trek" star Chris Pine were attached as a veteran engineer and his protege, respectively, who are tasked with stopping a runaway train full of toxic chemicals.
That concept, plus the presumably high costs of the movie's stars, apparently raised red flags at the Fox accounting department. The studio claims it's working to get the film back on track for less cash.
The plot sounds slightly similar to Taking of Pelham 1 2 3
. Well, we always look forward to seeing Denzel on th screen so hopefully unstoppable will get back on the road.
