Denzel Washington Refusing to Iron Out Any More Train Issues

Denzel Washington to 20th Century Fox: "I'm sorry but you're just going to have to find someone else to stop that runaway train full of toxic chemicals." The actor was set to star in Unstoppable--another film following the Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 formula of Tony Scott + Denzel Washington + trains--but Variety is now claiming the project is in jeopardy.

Sources say three months with little progress on Fox's side led the Oscar winner to pull out of the project last week, though reportedly Washington said he will look at where they are with the script before making a final decision. So, Fox, this would be a great time to hurry up and write in some parts where Denzel spontaneously grows Wolverine claws and cuts an entire locomotive to shreds before it can collide with an oncoming passenger train. The guy's done the Oscar thing; he's probably just looking to tear some shit up now.
