Denzel Washington will take a Flight with Robert Zemeckis
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The always great Denzel Washington is lining up another character driven drama, this time with director Robert Zemeckis. I can only assume that director Tony Scott was busy. The film they’ll be teaming up on is called FLIGHT and is about a pilot that successfully makes an emergency landing in a commercial aircraft. But the investigation turns up the fact that drugs and alcohol were involved and as the airlines try to cover up the fact, the pilot gets increasingly uncomfortable with his new found hero status. Even though nothing has been signed, it’s expected that it’s just a matter of details and shooting on this film is set to begin in the fall.
But Zemeckis is always a busy man and has been looking for a project after Disney axed his stop-motion YELLOW SUBMARINE. Denzel Washington has SAFE HOUSE on the way next.
