Denzel Washington has revealed backstage at 2009 MTV Movie Awards that Chris Pine will possibly join him to star in upcoming drama film 'Unstoppable.'
Having no plan to slow down when it comes to adding more resume into his acting career, Chris Pine reportedly will land a role in upcoming drama movie "Unstoppable." Breaking the news was Denzel Washington, who told MTV backstage at its 18th annual Movie Awards on Sunday, May 31, "I'm going to shoot a movie in the fall called 'Unstoppable' - me and Tony Scott - and Chris Pine's going to do it with us."
"I hope I'm not speaking out of line. I think they made a deal with him, and I'm supposed to meet him next week," Denzel quickly added. When asked to verify the matter, a spokesperson for The 20th Century Fox which produces the film told MTV, "We're in negotiations with him, but no deal yet."
And while Chris' involvement in the project is still unofficial, "Unstoppable" will mark the fifth time that Denzel and Tony work together in a film. They last teamed up in "The Taking of Pelham 123," which will be coming out in U.S. theaters next Friday, June 12.
"Unstoppable" itself, which is based on a true story, follows an engineer and his conductor who are in a race against time. Both of them are on board chasing the runaway train carrying a payload of toxic chemicals in a separate locomotive in an attempt to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town. Denzel is billed to play the engineer. No release date has been set just yet for this film.
