According to Variety, The Passion of the Christ star Jim Caviezel is joining "Deja Vu."

Caviezel is negotiating to play a terrorist who blows up a ferry. The drama stars Denzel Washington as an FBI agent who, upon discovering that a woman he loves was among the victims, travels back in time.

The Crimson Tide team of director Tony Scott, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Washington are making the film for Touchstone. Terry Rossio and Bill Marsilli wrote the script, and Chad Oman is exec producing with Mike Stenson and Ted Elliott.

For Caviezel, pic provides a respite from playing historical characters. Aside from Christ, he played Ethan Allen in "Rebels" and golfing great Bobby Jones in "Stroke of Genius." He just wrapped the Simon Brand-directed indie drama "Unknown."
