Tim McGraw joins Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in Safe House
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Country music superstar Tim McGraw, also known as Mr. Faith Hill, is set to star in the action film SAFE HOUSE, starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. And no, the film will not be directed by Tony Scott, even though it does star Denzel Washington. The film will be directed by Daniel Espinosa and revolves around a CIA agent (Reynolds) tasked with the unfortunate mission of transporting a dangerous criminal (Washington). Things get complicated when their safe house becomes under attack. No word on what role McGraw will be playing, but when out talking about his upcoming film COUNTRY STRONG, he mentioned this would be a more dramatic turn for him.
I don’t mind Tim McGraw as an actor, but to be fair, we’ve never really seen him try to act. He’s been cautious with most of his roles by choosing characters that either require him to be a country boy or just stand back and support someone else. So if his role in SAFE HOUSE really does challenge him, then I guess we’ll get to see what he can do.
