Oh how the tide has changed! I remember when there was speculation about whether or not Tony Scott‘s Unstoppable would get made. Now, Fox is throwing in cast members left and right. The film is headlined by Denzel Washington and Star Trek’s Chris Pine. Just yesterday we reported on actress Rosario Dawson joining the cast, and now two more actors have hitched a ride on this train. Find out more on the story below.
According to THR, Kevin Dunn and Jessy Schram have signed on to co-star in Unstoppable. Schram will star opposite Pine as his estranged wife, while Dunn will play the boss of Dawson’s train dispatcher character. The film is scheduled to start production this fall in Pittsburgh. Mark Bomback wrote the screenplay that Scott will direct from, while Julie Yorn is producing alongside Scott and Mimi Rogers
The story focuses on a veteran train conductor who’s about to become the victim of company lay offs due to cutbacks. Pine will star as the young engineer who’s been hired to take his place. The pair are forced into a life or death situation when they have to divert a runaway train carrying a shipment of toxic chemicals headed straight towards them.
Most of you probably remember Dunn as the father of Sam Witwicky in both Transformers films. He’s a well known character actor who I absolutely love. I’ve seen the man do drama and comedy without a single hiccup. I like to see people with actual talent get steady work.
