Denzel Washington in Robert Zemeckis' Live-Action "Flight" Film

Posted: June 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Denzel Washington in Robert ZemeckisSubmit Comment
LA Times has learned that Robert Zemeckis' next film will be the live-action airplane drama "Flight," which will likely begin filming in the fall. Denzel Washington is attached to star; his deal will close shortly.

"Flight" is fictional tale that revolves around a commercial airline pilot named Whip Whitaker (Washington). When his plane malfunctions and a crash seems imminent, he saves the day with some heroic flying and manages to land the plane with minimal casualties. He's instantly hailed as a hero, but as an investigation into the cause of the crash unfolds, it becomes clear that he was flying under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

The film is the pilot's journey as he is encouraged to wear a hero label he thinks he doesn't deserve, while the pilot's union and airline try to keep the facts under cover because of the high stakes involved.

Whip Whitaker? Why not call him Corn Field Carl or Kunta Kinte?

Sort of reminds me of "Hero" with Dustin Hoffman.

so should we expect 2 airplane movies from denzel after the 2 recent train movies?

I think Hollywood should stop typecasting Denzel in films about slowing things down.

"Whip"? Really people? Are his Hispanic and Asian copilots named 'Bean Garcia' and 'Chink Lee'?

Sounds like "The Pilot" (1980)with Cliff Robertson.

I'd rather read an airplane emergency landing handbook than watch this oiless Exxon Valdeez in the skies film.

And who the hell names a black kid Whip? Antonio, Darius, Lemarch or Demarcus, but Whip? Yeah, right. With a name like that, I'd do drugs and drink too.

nevermind the plot, I've been waiting ten long years to see Zemeckis make live films again.

I hope this is good. It would be nice to see BZ get his live-action sea legs back. And Denzel Washington is generally decent. But oy, the plot is weird.
