Terry George To Rewrite 'Safe House' With Denzel Washington & Ryan Reynolds

The Playlist By Jessica Kiang | The Playlist October 18, 2010 at 5:42AM

"Safe House" has got all kinds of heat around it. Firstly, the script by David Guggenheim (no, not Davis, the director of "Waiting For Superman") caused a Hollywood bidding war earlier this year, and after Denzel Washington took the lead role, another minor frenzy was caused as every young actor vied for the co-starring gig, with Ryan Reynolds landing the part. And if that wasn't enough, Daniel Espinosa is set to make his Hollywood debut directing the film getting the gig after his sleek drug drama "Snabba Cash" became a sensation at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year (and is set for a remake starring Zac Efron).

Well, some more top shelf talent is working on the project as Terry George, screenwriter of "Hotel Rwanda" and "In The Name Of The Father" has been tapped to rewrite the script that tells the story of "a young CIA agent (Reynolds) who must transport a dangerous criminal (Denzel Washington) to safety after they are attacked at a safe house."

Production on the Universal film is set to begin in early 2011 once Reynolds wraps the comedy "The Change Up" and presumably before he begins the long press tour of duty for "Green Lantern." -- Kevin Jagernauth
