A while back it was reported that Robert Zemeckis, prince of the dead-eyed motion capture technology, was actually working on a movie about a (secretly drunk) heroic pilot called Flight. Now it’s being reported that the movie is on track to begin shooting in the fall, with Denzel Washington attached to star.
Washington specializing in conflicted and dark heroes, and Zemeckis being a registered pilot. This will be his first live-action movie since 2000’s Cast Away, which as you probably remember also deals with the exciting world of danger on board an airplane. (LA Times)
