Denzel Washington has reached a deal with 20th Century Fox to star in drama Unstoppable.

The actor pulled out of the project earlier this month, reportedly because he refused to lower his $20 million pay to help reduce the movie's budget.

According to Variety, the Oscar winner took a new script with him while promoting The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3 in Europe and has reached a compromise with Fox.

Washington will reteam with Man On Fire director Tony Scott on the film.

Mark Bomback's Unstoppable script centres on an engineer who teams up with a young conductor (Chris Pine) to stop a runaway train filled with deadly chemicals.
