Tony Scott has boarded the Fox thriller “Unstoppable,” intending to make it the next film he directs.
Scott is working with screenwriter Mark Bomback to get the picture in shape to be shot later this year.
The drama involves an unmanned runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals. An engineer and his conductor on a separate locomotive try to bring the runaway under control before it derails.
Julie Yorn is producing; Scott will board the project as a producer as well.
Scott most recently completed “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3” the Columbia Pictures drama that will be released June 12.
Scott is repped by CAA.
