Twitch reports that Washington was offered the role for the film which is set to be written and directed by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass, Breach)
In the movie, a retired legal counselor writes a novel in an attempt to find closure with an unresolved homicide case. He is also trying to deal with his “unreciprocated love with his superior.
Washington is set to star in the movie Flight, from Robert Zemeckis. He will of course have to finish filming that movie before he starts on this project, if he chooses to accept.
