After those earlier budgetary snafus, it seems that Tony Scott’s Unstoppable is now hurtling inexorably towards its start date, like a shinkanzen with no brakes.

Two more actors have joined the cast of the runaway train movie, with Jessy Schram and the under-rated Kevin Dunn bolstering the big-name trio already on board. That would be Denzel Washington, Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson, in case you didn’t know.

Washington and Pine will play an engineer and conductor, respectively, who must band together to stop their train, laden with toxic chemicals, from crashing into a nearby city. That would be Bad.

Dawson signed on this week to play a train dispatcher, a la Washington in The Taking Of Pelham 123, who helps the boys out via radio. Dunn, who was one of the few moving parts it was enjoyable to watch in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, will play Dawson’s boss. Schram will play Pine’s estranged wife.

Mark Bomback wrote the script for a movie that seems so gloriously uncomplicated that it might have made do with an instruction manual. But it’s Tony’n’Denzel, and so this is high on our must-see list.

Filming on the Fox thriller will start this autumn in Pittsburgh.
