Here’s your first look at Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds on the Cape Town, South Africa set of their upcoming spy/action movie “Safe House”. Also in the set pics, actress Nora Arnezeder, who is playing Reynolds’ girlfriend in the movie.
In the film, Reynolds plays Matt Weston, a CIA agent who must protect prisoner/rogue ex-agent Tobin Frost (Denzel) from assassins when their safe house is hit. Essentially Washington is playing the “bad guy” who isn’t really a bad guy, but just “bad” enough until the REALLY bad guys show up. You’ve seen it before in films like “Ghosts of Mars”, “Assault on Precinct 13″, etc.
Daniel Espinosa is directing from a script by David Guggenheim. Look for it in 2012.
