Robert Zemeckis to return to live action with new time travel flick

I cannot belive that it has been ten years since Robert Zemeckis last directed a live-action movie. That film was CASTAWAY, and since then the helmer has focussed on live-action flicks like THE POLAR EXPRESS and A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Now it seems that not only is Zemeckis opting to direct a flick that will star ‘real’ actors, but is looking to return to the subject that helped make his name in Hollywood. Time travel.

Back To The Future and Castaway director, Robert Zemeckis

Nearlt 25 years to the day since BACK TO THE FUTURE hit cinemas (a film that is playing NOW in a cinema near you for a limited time), Zemeckis is looking at a project called TIMELESS, accordingto Deadline a big tent pole picture that will be written by Mike Thompson.

We haven’t got a great deal more info on TIMELESS, but we’re excited excited excited at the prospect of Mr. Zemeckis bringing us another live action gem to the screen. His next project is YELLOW SUBMARINE, based on the 1968 Beatles film and starring Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz and Adam Campbell.

Paul has been writing for film websites for over ten years. The Hollywood News was born out of love for film and his frustration at not being a very good filmmaker himself. Those who cannot do, write about – or so they say. Aside from the site, Paul has directed a music video (badly), has one credit to his name on the IMDb, enjoys running, driving (now that he has finally passed his test at the age of 33), and of course going to the movies.
