Washingtonis of course a natural, and I’m a big fan of Reynolds, so putting the two together can only be good news in my books.
We’ve now got a new black and white poster to share from the film, courtesy of ComingSoon.net, ahead of its release next month. Along with Washington and Reynolds, the film has a great supporting cast that includes Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick, Joel Kinnaman, and Sam Shepard. It marks the feature debut of screenwriter David Guggenheim, and the English-language debut of Swedish director Daniel Espinosa, who is reuniting with his Easy Money star Kinnaman for this.
“Oscar(R) winner Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in the action-thriller Safe House.Washingtonplays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he’s remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead. For the past year, Matt Weston has been frustrated by his inactive, backwater post inCape Town. A “housekeeper” who aspires to be a full-fledged agent, the loyal company man has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When the first and only occupant he’s had proves to be the most dangerous man he’s ever met, Weston readies for duty. Tobin Frost has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIA’s known, the ex-intelligence officer has given up assets and sold military intel to anyone with cash since he turned. From trading secrets toNorth Koreato aiding splinter cells, the damage he’s done to theU.S.is immeasurable. And he’s now back on the reservation with a secret. As soon as Frost is brought in for debriefing, mercenaries come and tear apart Weston’s safe house. Barely escaping, the unlikely partners must discover if their attackers have been sent by terrorists or someone on the inside who will kill anyone standing in the way. Now it’s up to Weston to figure out who he can trust before they’re both eliminated from the game.”
Safe House will be hitting cinemas on 24th February this year, which is a date I’m looking forward to. In case you missed the trailer a few months ago, I’ve embedded it beneath the poster below to get you looking forward to it too. As usual with the poster, click to enlarge.
