Live from the subways, it’s The Remaking of Pelham 1-2-3. New York’s seminal subway movie from the 1970s, The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 stands a classic view of both the subways and the city frozen in a moment of time. Today, Tony Scott is remaking the film with Denzel Washington, John Travolta and James Gandolfini. I’m not so optimistic that this remake will have the charmed and humor of the original, but, hey, we’ve got pictures of the site.
As you can see, Denzel Washington, an MTA employee with a gun up there, doesn’t look too amused, and I’m just terrified of the idea of a friendly MTA station agent packing heat. Whudat and WireImage have some more pictures for your viewing pleasure.
