Actor Denzel Washington has entered negotiations with Warner Bros to headline its film adaptation of Adam Sternbergh's sci-fi novel, Shovel Ready.
The award-winning actor and father of four is offered to lead the film, the feature adaptation of a forthcoming sci-fi novel by New York Times Magazine culture editor Adam Sternbergh, reported Ace Showbiz.
In a way similar to Washington's, Man on Fire, the plot of upcoming movie centers on a garbageman-turned-hitman, who is hired to kill the daughter of a powerful, maniacal evangelist. Ultimately, the killer becomes the girl's protector. It is set in a dystopian future of New York City.
As of now, the project already gets Erwin Stoff on board to be the producer.
The actor himself is already committed to, The Equalizer, which unites him and young Hollywood star Chloe Moretz.
