    Watch: Denzel Washington Saves Lives, Loathes Self In Trailer For Robert Zemeckis' 'Flight'

    While most people would be thankful to be alive after surviving a horrific plane crash, in "Flight," the newest drama from Robert Zemeckis (and his first live action film in over a decade), it's just the start of the story about a man who is either very skilled, very lucky or both.

    Robert Zemeckis hasn't had a particularly good year. The veteran director of "Back to the Future" and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" finally hit a performance capture wall when "Mars Needs Moms," the animated Disney feature from his Imagemovers company, became one of the biggest money-losers of the year...

    Brian Geraghty Will Co-Pilot With Denzel Washington In Robert Zemeckis' 'Flight'

    It might have taken a little time (18 months passed between the film's premiere in Venice and its Oscar victory), but basically everyone came out of "The Hurt Locker" with a ton of heat behind them. Directing and writing pair Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal attracted the attention of most of the A-list for their thriller "Triple Frontier," before switching streams to head to the unexpectedly timely "Kill Bin Laden," which is gearing up to go next. Jeremy Renner has become the most sought-after leading man in town, with lead roles in "The Avengers," "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" and "The Bourne Legacy," w...

    Don Cheadle & Bruce Greenwood Take 'Flight' With Robert Zemeckis & Denzel Washington

    Steven Soderbergh says something on the "Out of Sight" DVD commentary that few would disagree with: "If you can put Don Cheadle in your movie, you should put Don Cheadle in your movie." He's been true to his word, going on to cast the great actor in "Traffic" and three "Ocean's Eleven" movies, and Cheadle's livened up plenty of other projects as well, from his Oscar-nominated turn in "Hotel Rwanda" to, most recently, playing straight man to Brendan Gleeson in "The Guard." Hell, he was even brilliant as Captain Planet. Now, Robert Zemeckis has taken the tip, as Cheadle, along with another stalwart character actor, seems to have come on board t...

    Robert Zemeckis In Talks To Direct 'Here There Be Monsters' With Script By Brian Helgeland

    Ah Hollywood -- a magical place where a project can change hands a half dozen times before being locked down. In this case, Warner Bros. "Here There Be Monsters" is the culprit, and the studio is now in talks with Robert Zemeckis to direct, The Wrap reports. Paul Greengrass most recently took an interest in the project, but he appears to have moved on (hopefully to better things?). Brian Helgeland, whose two most recently produced credits were the underperforming "Green Zone" and the coldly received "Robin Hood", is set to write the film, which would follow a disgraced British Naval officer who is hired by a rich shipping magnate to investiga...
