Chris Pine joining Unstoppable

Fresh from launching himself to stardom with Star Trek , Chris Pine has picked his next job – starring in Unstoppable with Denzel Washington.

Tony Scott is behind the drama, which sees Washington as an experience train engineer trying to stop a runaway train loaded with toxic chemicals.

Now that he’s aboard – pun entirely intended – Pine will play a young conductor who helps out.

Apparently, the film is loosely – and since it’ll be directed by Tony Scott, we’re going to say very loosely – inspired by real events.

It all kicks off shooting in August for a summer release next year.

Denzel and Scott on another train thriller? Chuffed? Or are they out of steam?
