Robert Zemeckis is getting back into the live-action business, directing “Flight,” starring Denzel Washington, Paramount Pictures said Friday.

The movie is a redemption tale about Whip, an airline pilot who lands a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight with 106 people — think Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger with star power.
