According to Variety, Denzel Washington is in final negotiations to reunite with director Tony Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer for Touchstone's romantic thriller Deja Vu. Washington will play an FBI agent with the ability to travel back in time. He falls in love with a woman as her murder approaches.

The trio had a success together with Crimson Tide, the 1995 submarine thriller that grossed $159 million worldwide.

Scott and Washington teamed for last year's Man on Fire, which grossed more than $100 million worldwide.

With Washington, Scott and Bruckheimer together on a picture sure to include some visual effects, Deja Vu is likely to cost upwards of $75 million.

Deja Vu was a spec script by Terry Rossio and Bill Marsilli.

Scott signed on to direct in March, and Washington was the clear choice to star. Decision was delayed until Washington opened in "Julius Caesar" on Broadway.
