Ryan Reynolds: Safe House Lock-Up with Denzel Washington!

Ryan Reynolds is close to signing up for the upcoming thriller, Safe House, opposite Denzel Washington.

Pic follows the only surviving agent of an attack on a CIA safe house (Reynolds) as he tries to get a lethal prisoner (Washington) to a second safe house before being taken out by violent forces that want them both dead.

THR reports Ryan beat out Inception‘s Tom Hardy, Zac Efron, James McAvoy, Sam Worthington, and Shia LaBeouf, all of whom were considered/met by Snabba Cash director Daniel Espinosa. Taylor Kitsch, Denzel‘s Unstoppable co-star Chris Pine, Tron‘s Garrett Hedlund, Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth and Jake Gyllenhaal were all reportedly in contention as well.

Very impressive on Ryan‘s part!

    James McAvoy , Tom Hardy and Ryan Reynolds – that would be a tough choice. All three are very talented. Can’t say about the others, haven’t seen anything with them yet.

  • dee

    hmm Ryan and Tom HArdy..tough choice..really tough

    but Zac Efron? Where’d that come from?

  • WTF

    Zac Efron thanks for making be laugh JJ and no to Shia LaBeouf.

    I would be happy with anyone else from the rest of the pack.

  • Emily

    I like Ryann but I think Tom Hardy would be good for the part.

  • dung

    the fact that zac efron is even listed says something. maybe hollywood just pities him, or maybe hollywood thinks he’s really got some talent. whatever your thoughts might be, know that he’s earned the respect of many of hollywood’s biggest names.

  • fan

    I am quite sure that when you have a big star like Denzel Washington, he has some say who he wants as his co-star and to work with.

  • ugh

    Ryan Reynolds is ooooooogly
