Tony Scott is all set to remake the feature film Taking of Pelham One Two Three. According to Variety, Denzel Washington will be starring in this Columbia Pictures project.

Spider-Man 4 screenwriter David Koepp wrote this new take on an old classic. His latest incarnation of the story will take place in New York City, where four hijackers board a subway train and use the passengers for ransom. Washington will be playing Zachary "Z" Garber, a role originated by Walter Matthau.

The film will go into production during the first quarter of 2008.
