Tim McGraw to Star in ‘Safe House’
Tim McGraw is trading his Stetson for spy gear to get ready for his next big-screen adventure. Although Tim's latest movie, 'Country Strong' with Gwyneth Paltrow, doesn't open nationwide until January 7, the singer/actor is already jumping into his next role -- in an action flick that also stars Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.
Tim was promoting 'Country Strong' when he told movie site ComingSoon that he has signed on to the Daniel Espinosa-directed 'Safe House,' which will be set in Washington, D.C., and will feature Ryan as a young CIA agent working to get a criminal to a secure location. Although Tim wouldn't give many details about the film, he says he's playing a spy in the flick that will soon begin filming in South Africa and is currently scheduled to open in February 2012.
"I get to play actually something action-packed," Tim said during a press roundtable, reports Cinema Blend, another movie site. "Shoot people and all that stuff. I'm looking forward to all that stuff."
