Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Just recently I blathered a bit in my Behind the Scenes Picture of the Day column about how much I miss Robert Zemeckis in live-action world and it seems that the movie gods were listening.
According to Borys Kit at THR Zemeckis will be directing a drama called Flight, for Paramount. Based on a script by John Gatins the flick is about an alcoholic druggie pilot who happens to save the day and his passengers in an emergency situation, but in the FAA's investigation the man's problems with substance abuse starts to surface.
Kit says that Denzel Washington has been attached in the past and is believed to still be involved.
So, Yellow Submarine is dead, but we get Zemeckis back in the non-cartoon world. Thoughts?
