THR is reporting that Chris Pine’s next role will be opposite Denzel Washington in Fox’s action drama “Unstoppable.”

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. Mark Bomback wrote the script.

Is it just me or does this movie sound like one of the biggest cliches in movie history?
