Director: Daniel Espinosa Cast: Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Robert Patrick Synopsis: A young CIA agent is tasked with looking after a fugitive in a safe house. But when the safe house is attacked,…
Remember Ryan Reynolds? He’s still alive!
He’d better not try to harm a hair on Denzel’s head.
She’s a spy!
They definitely look “safe,” alright.
Man, how many bad guys are in Safe House? And how do they all know the location of this Safe House?
There ain’t no party like a ‘Safe House’ party, and look who’s invited to the film: Robert Patrick, Brendan Gleeson, Liam Cunningham and Sam Shepard.
French It Girl Nora Arnezeder has signed on to play Ryan Reynolds’s girlfriend in ‘Safe House.’ Not only that but a certain Hollywood heavyweight may join as well.
It seems Ryan Reynolds's washboard abs are nabbing all the juicy roles these days. Green Lantern himself has emerged as the front runner to play opposite Denzel Washington in Safe House. Washington signed on a few weeks ago as the film's villain, and Reynolds would be the hero, "a young CIA agent who must transport a dangerous criminal to safety after both are attacked at a safe house."
Some very talented young actors have been vying for the role, including Shia LeBeouf, Taylor Kitsch, Chris Pine, Sam Worthington, Garrett Hedlund, Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth, and Jake Gyllenhaal. No final decision has been made, so we can't give Reynolds the crown just yet. I have it on good authority that Universal Studios will be closing down the gym at a local YMCA to award the role. All of the actors will be filed in and a broken pool cue dropped in the middle of them. My money's still on Deadpool. (Deadline)
Birdie.Denzel Washington is in talks to star in Safe House, an original spy thriller set in South Africa, but let's not make this a racial thing. The script, written by David Guggenheim, "follows a young U.S. intelligence agent who must go on the run with a newly arrived prisoner (Denzel’s potential role) after his titular safe house comes under attack — think of a mix between Collateral and Three Days of the Condor." Sounds more like a mix between Bulletproof and Spy Hard. Guggenheim sparked a bidding war with the script this past winter.A spy thriller wouldn't be my next project choice for Denzel, but I don't commission 10% of his salary to tell him what sets to show up on. The overall concept for Safe House seems stale though, and I can't understand why studios would clamor over one another to secure it. Maybe Denzel knows something I don't. Like where I put my car keys. I gotta get out of this trunk before the sun sets. The desert gets chilly at night. (Vulture)
