Denzel Washington is the Little Train that Couldn't

So it's official: Tony Scott's current project, Unstoppable, has been stopped in its tracks for good.

After Fox shut down the production for budgetary reasons Denzel Washington, one of the two lead actors (alongside Chris Pine), has dropped out of the project:

Sources said that after cutting a $107 million tab down to $100 million, Fox wants it in the low $90 million range. The studio asked Scott to cut his salary from $9 million to $6 million, and wanted Washington to shave $4 million off his $20 million fee. Washington declined.

After The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, a movie featuring trains that was recently released starring Washington, only pulled in $60 million, the actor has had enough of trains for awhile.

That said -- the man won't give up $4 million from a $20 million payday? That seems a little...miserly, to put it nicely. I mean, the production was already going, everyone was doing their thing, and now Chris Pine has to search around for his next job.

This train has left the station for good. Oh well.
