Pelham is about to be taken again — and Denzel Washington and Tony Scott are doing the taking.

Variety reports that Washington and Scott — who previously teamed up for Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, and Deja Vu — will collaborate on a remake of 1974’s The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. The Joseph Sargent-directed original, which starred Walter Matthau as a grumpy New York City cop working to foil a subway hijacking led by Robert Shaw, is considered a ’70s action classic — it boasts a 100 percent Tomatometer rating — but its status as what James Rocchi refers to as a “little-known gem” could make it easier for a new version to make inroads with filmgoers.

Washington — who can be seen this fall in American Gangster, directed by Tony Scott’s brother, Ridley — will take over for Matthau in the remake, which is expected to begin production early next year; David Koepp wrote the script.
