What is it with Denzel Washington and big vehicles? Having had one in every of his subway trains jacked within the Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3, then had a cargo train exit of control in Unstoppable, he’s now signed as much as star because the hero pilot of a damaged plane within the film Flight. Here’s the official blurb: “Flight tells the redemption story of ‘Whip’ (Washington), a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a heroic feat of flying in a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people. While the arena begs to embrace him as a real American hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he’s forced to carry as much as the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behaviour the night before the doomed flight.” The film was written by Real Steel-scribe John Gatins and can be directed by Robert Zemeckis. Shooting begins this October in Atlanta.
