It could be deja vu all over again (and again) for Denzel Washington and Tony Scott. Washington is in negotiations to star in a Scott-directed remake of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three for Sony. (The studio declined to comment.) Based on the 1974 movie starring Walter Matthau, Pelham would feature Washington as a cop who has to stop a hijacked subway car. The movie would mark the fourth pairing of Washington and Scott. Their previous collaborations include Man on Fire, the submarine thriller Crimson Tide, and last year’s Deja Vu, about a ferry boat explosion. Now with this subway movie on track, we’re dying to see which mode of transportation they tackle next. Air Force Two, perhaps?
