I feel like I’m not seeing as much as Denzel Washington as I want to. Wow, that makes it sound like we’re in a relationship. Seriously though, if Washington is in something it’s definitely worth watching. He’s proven that he’s a great actor no matter what project it is.
A few months ago, it was rumored that Washington was attached to star in FLIGHT with Robert Zemeckis directing. Finally it has been confirmed that the actor will officially be in the flick. The script comes from John Gatis (REAL STEEL) tells the redemption story of “Whip” (Washington), a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a heroic feat of flying in a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people. While the world begs to embrace him as a true American Hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he is forced to hold up to the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behavior the night before the doomed flight.
This will be Zemeckis’ return to live-action. The film starts shooting this October in Atlanta, GA.
