Denzel Washington Saves The Earth By Reading To ItWorking the whole knowledge-is-power angle, Denzel Washington is going to star as the man who saves a post apocalyptic world - with education - in Book of Eli. Washington travels the world fighting and teaching from the sacred book. Strange that a movie about a destroyed civilization and a man fighting to save the world still sounds like every other teacher/coach movie Washington has made.Book Of Eli will be directed by Allen and Albert Hughes, and it begins shooting in January. If I had to chose who I wanted to lead me through a barren post-apocalyptic world I must admit Denzel Washington never actually came to mind, so I'm interested in seeing what he's got to offer. Just as long as there isn't a valuable lesson for the audience tucked into the plot. [Variety]
