Star Trek Star, Chris Pine is in negotiation to star opposite Oscar winning actor Denzel Washington in an action drama for Fox, Tony Scott Directing and Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard) penned the script.
Washington previously worked with Scott in Crimson Tide, Deja Vu and Man on Fire (1995, 2004,and 2006, respectively).
The story centers on an experienced train engineer (Washington) about to be laid off as part of company cutbacks and the newbie conductor hired to replace him. Pine would play the newbie. They find themselves in a race against time to stop an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train carrying enough combustible liquids and poisonous gas to wipe out a nearby city.
