Robert Zemeckis Trivia

Robert Zemeckis Return To Time Travel Wednesday, September 29, 2010 Source:Deadline Robert Zemeckis is back to traveling through time. The famed director, respomsible for classics like Back To The Future nad Forest Gump, is returning to the screen with Timeless, a yet-to-be-written film about time travel. Warner Bros. is keeping the pitched story under wraps, but Deadline reports that it will be a "major tent-pole movie" for the studio. Currently, there are no deatails on casting, but regardless, we're excited to see Zemeckis return to live-action drama after spending the past ten years doing the 3D capture film Polar Express, Beowulf, and A Christmas Carol. Yeah, those films wre great for technology and filmmaking and all that, but live-action is where Zemeckis is meant to be. In short, the dude just knows how to direct. In his extensive career, the films he's worked on have gained 32 Oscar nominations with 11 wins. Whoa! And of course, any time Zemeckis makes a movie, there's always a chance Tom Hanks will be involved. And personally, I'd love to see Hanks do some time travel. Maybe he could go back in time and erase The Da Vinci Code.
