There’s “Chronicle 2” (although John Landis has said that Fox aren’t entirely happy with the direction his son has taken the sequel), the superhero TV series “Vigilant,” a Frankenstein project with Paul McGuigan attached to direct and the mysterious “Amnesty” with Ron Howard to name just a few. So what’s next for Landis? Well, directing, naturally.

As you know, Denzel Washington plays a booze-soaked pilot who manages the heroic feat of landing a doomed flight. However, one of the companies that's seen in his liquor cabinet is asking to be taken out of the movie.
