Denzel Washington and Chris Pine team up in the upcoming action-thriller Unstoppable directed by Tony Scott. Washington and Pine play train engineers whose lives are put at risk in an attempt to stop an unmanned long freight train carrying combustible liquids and poisonous gas enough to wipe out an entire city.
Based on actual events, the story centers on an experienced train engineer, Frank Barnes (Washington) who’s about to be laid off as part of company cutbacks while Chris Pine plays Will Gordon, the newbie conductor hired to replace him.
Chris Pine, who starred in the sci-fi film Star Trek, likens both movies in a recent interview with MTV. "It [Unstoppable] also has the genetic code of the summer tentpole movie. It’s fun and action-packed. And it’s got some really interesting, complex characters to kind of anchor the whole thing. And Tony always talked about how the movie was like a train. Once it gets going, it just does not stop," Pine shares.
Unstoppable opens November 10, 2010 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
