Pine now Unstoppable

06.04.2009

Chris Pine The article's title works on two levels because after the enormous critical and financial success of J.J. Abrams' rebooted STAR TREK, star Chris Pine is, for the time being, at least, unstoppable as young Hollywood A-list. He also happens to be in talks to star opposite Denzel Washington in the upcoming Tony Scott directed thriller UNSTOPPABLE. In the film, Washington will play a veteran train engineer about to be laid off who teams up with his young replacement (Pine) in order to stop an "unmanned, half-mile-long freight train carrying enough combustible liquids and poisonous gas to wipe out a nearby city." This is quite the nebulous time for Pine right now. His phone is probably ringing off the hook with every producer under the sun wanting him in their flick and depending on his choices, his career can go the illustrious and respectable Matt Damon route or the unfortunate Ben Affleck route. A Tony Scott thriller co-starring Denzel Washington is certainly a step in the right direction. At least in theory.

Extra Tidbit: Pine was considered for the lead in the TRON sequel.

LET'S GET MOVING INDEED

I totally agree with TBag. Don't just put out a total piece of shit though. Take some time working on a great script, But at least confirm a sequel and get the whole cast to return.

They should ...

... do it like a remake of Silver Streak, the comedy which had Richard Pryor & Gene Wilder.

THAT would be awesome!!

Sounds like...

this plot was possibly concieved as Speed 3.

I'm also getting a bit tired of the Scott/Washington teaming, and I think a break from each other might do them both good.

Signing on to costar with Denzel Washington in anything would be considered a good move. Signing on to work with Tony Scott? Not bad. Will it be a goo movie?...

...Eh, could go either way with them. As actor-director teams go, I'm sorry to say a Washington-Scott ticket is not one of the better teams. "Crimson Tide" is still a pretty awesome film, though, and "Man of Fire" has its moments.

cool

Good for him, he was one of the best parts of Star Trek and he was awesome in Smokin' Aces.

But Tony Scott and Denzel are doing another train movie right after Pelham 123?

Hmmm...well at least Tony scott learns from his mistakes. He realised what was wrong with the Taking of Pelham 123 and decided he'd take John Travolta out of it.

I mean come on doesn't this just seem remarkably similar even having Denzel washington play a train guy again...

Am i the only one?

Tony Scott's always a good ne to put your money on so good choice Chris but seriously this is just ridiculous to me.
