Earlier today Variety‘s Ramin Setoodeh reported that Denzel Washington is “eyeing” the lead in Dan Gilroy‘s Inner City, which is “being billed as a character study in the vein of Paul Newman’s performance in The Verdict,” Setoodeh wrote, especially given that Washington will play a lawyer “in an ambulance-chasing firm.” I’ve since been told by an insider that while Inner City may be Verdict-like in this or that regard, the ambulance-chasing description is “inaccurate.”
