Denzel Washington is circling the lead role in “Inner City,” a legal drama billed as a character study in the vein of Paul Newman’s 1982 classic “The Verdict,” according to Variety.

 

Dan Gilroy will direct from his own script about a lawyer (Washington) in an ambulance-chasing firm who takes over when his boss falls ill, only to make a mess of things at every turn.

The movie, set in Los Angeles, has yet to be shopped to distributors, according to Variety. However, several major players, including Netflix, are said to be interested.

Washington can next been seen in Antoine Fuqua’s remake of “The Magnificent Seven,” which will open this year’s Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 8. And he carries directing and acting duties for the big-screen adaptation of August Wilson’s “Fences,” opposite Viola Davis.
