Chris Pine: About to Become Unstoppable?

It’s nice to see that Chris Pine is starting to keep better company.

The Star Trek star—recently rumored to have been dating Hills brunette Audrina Patridge—is in negotiations to star alongside Denzel Washington in the upcoming thriller Unstoppable, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In the movie, Washington will play a train engineer who’s about to be laid off due to cutbacks. Pine is in talks to play his replacement, who helps Washington try to stop an unmanned freight train carrying a potentially disastrous load of combustible liquids and poisonous gas.

The film is being produced by Tony Scott (The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, Tristan + Isolde).
