Anyone want to wager on whether or not there’s a number entitled “Great Scott?”

If I see so much as one mo-cap pingpong ball within fifteen feet of Denzel, so help me God, I’m burning down that set.

Even after ‘Mars Needs Moms’, Robert Zemeckis somehow gets to produce more Disney animated movies. Amazing.

Robert Zemeckis To Mercifully Direct Live-Action Again With ‘Flight’?
Wednesday, April 20 by

Paramount offered him a film to direct where the actors wouldn’t wear ping-pong-ball-suits. I know – pure craziness.

‘Mars Needs Moms’ Thankfully Drowned Zemeckis ‘Yellow Submarine’

Like a beloved uncle who hits the sauce too much, Zemeckis has gotten drunk on motion capture technology. Now it looks like he might sober-up and stop putting actors into ping-pong ball suits.

Robert Zemeckis Won’t Mess With ‘The Wizard Of Oz’
Thursday, November 18 by

The space-time continuum is safe for now. Robert Zemeckis has wisely passed on the opportunity to remake the beloved classic The Wizard Of Oz.

If you ask me, going back to the original script is a great idea. Hopefully it’s chalk-full of references to William Jennings Bryan and the gold standard, which is sure to bring the Ron Paul demographic out to the theaters.

‘Back To The Future’ Footage Of Eric Stoltz As Marty McFly Surfaces
Tuesday, October 12 by

Thanks to the Blu-Ray release of Back To The Future, long-rumored footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly has finally surfaced. What are you doing in there, Eric Stoltz? You are not a Marty McFly. You are an Eric Stoltz.
A bit of background, Stoltz was originally hired for the lead role but then replaced by Michael J. Fox after five weeks of filming. Fans have talked about the existence of this footage, but few have seen it. It's bizarre yet awesome to see after all this time. Now that this is out of the way, can we get back to work on making Hover Boards real?
Check out the bizarro universe footage after the jump…

Robert Zemeckis To Time Travel Again With ‘Timeless’
Wednesday, September 29 by

Oh, happy day. Robert Zemeckis is finally ready to take a step away from directing creepy dead-in-the-eyes motion capture features, and return to what he does best — live-action movies about time travel. The director will get behind the lens for Timeless, a project we don't know jack about. Other than the news that it's scripted by Mike Thompson, is about time travel and will have a lot of money pumped into it by Warner Bros. As a huge fan of the Back to the Future films, I'm already psyched for it. If Zemeckis can get used to working with flesh and blood, non-creepy actors again (or Crispin Glover), we should be in for a treat. (Deadline)

Zemeckis Goes Back to ‘Back to the Future’
Thursday, September 16 by

It’s been 25 years since director Robert Zemeckis and producer Bob Gale hatched the plot for one of the greatest sci-fi franchises of all time: Back to the Future. In honor of the anniversary, all three films are being released on Blu-ray, complete with all the bonus features you’ve come to expect even though you usually never watch.

In this clip procured by Cinema Blend, Zemeckis and Gale discuss the idea behind the film, and how a chance look through an old yearbook lead to the formation of the plot. It's something, huh? Who would've thought? 100 to 1 shot! I wish I could go back to the beginning of production, put some money on Zemeckis. I said I wish I could go back to the beginning of production, put some money on Robbie.

Disney Closing Zemeckis’ Mo-Cap Dead Eyes
Friday, March 12 by

Tom Hanks minus a soul. Robert Zemeckis' obsession with motion capture has reached its glorious end! At least as far as Disney is concerned. After Zemeckis is finished with his film Mars Needs Moms (it's like he was asking for it), ImageMovers Digital will close in 2011. Walt Disney Studio president Alan Bergman says:Bob and the entire IMD team successfully built a state of the art studio and produced an amazing film, A Christmas Carol, at a time when the dynamics of the industry are rapidly changing. But, given today’s economic realities, we need to find alternative ways to bring creative content to audiences and IMD no longer fits into our business model.a.k.a. your characters are creepin' kids out, Bob. I for one am extremely happy to hear this news. Why did the man who brought us Forrest Gump and Tales from the Crypt go apesh*t over sticking dots to professional actors and turning them into animated cyborgs? Never underestimate the importance of pupils on screen. They make us believe the characters have a conscience, even if it's Gary Busey up there. (Deadline)

Zemeckis Talks ‘Roger Rabbit’ Sequel
Saturday, October 31 by

While talking to Robert Zemeckis about his upcoming film A Christmas Carol, MTV slipped in a question about a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? sequel, and it appears one is in the works. Sure, one's been in the works for two decades now, but now one is really in the works, and with the original writers. Check out what Zemeckis had to say below.

Jim Carrey in ‘A Christmas Carol’ Clip
Thursday, October 22 by

A new clip from Robert Zemeckis's A Christmas Carol has crash landed like your embarrassment of an uncle after a few too many eggnog cocktails. That's a compliment. To the movie. Your uncle's a mess.If you're not familiar with the Dickens classic, then don't watch, because for some reason the studio decided to put the ending online before the movie hits theaters. If you are familiar with it, then I encourage you to watch, if only to see how far Zemeckis's animated filmmaking has come since Polar Express, in which all the characters looked like they hailed from the Village of the Damned. But this time around, Scrooge and company actually seem like they have soul. Not James Brown level, or even on the level of your fat uncle when he busts out the soundtrack to The Commitments and tries to sing along, which only ends up getting the cats all hot and bothered. But it's a step in the right direction.
