Travolta In Talks To Hijack PELHAM Remake

John Travolta is currently in talks to play the leader of a group of terrorists who hijack a Manhattan subway in the upcoming remake of The Taking Of Pelham 123. He’ll be squaring off against Denzel Washington, who’ll be playing the police detective placed in charge of stopping the terrorists. Travolta’s role was played by Robert Shaw in the 1974 original, while Washington’s detective character was portrayed by Walter Matthau.

The film is scheduled to begin production early next year with Tony Scott directing a script from David Koepp.
