Robert Zemeckis Returning to Live-Action w/ More Time Travel

Robert Zemeckis

I almost don't believe this! Legendary filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, responsible for unforgettable classics like Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, Contact and Cast Away, but also responsible for kicking off the CGI revolution with Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol, may finally be returning to live-action in the near future. Deadline reports that Zemeckis is circling a time travel project called Timeless, written by Mike Thompson, at Warner Bros (where he's also apparently been showing interest in the new Superman). Zemeckis and ImageMovers are producing, making this a truly vintage Zemeckis-crafted project. Read on!

Deadline doesn't have any details on this Timeless project, nor do we. They don't have any info on the story and I've scoured the web looking for something, anything, but came up empty handed. All they said is that "it's a big tentpole picture," which isn't surprising or informative. Zemeckis has apparently been considering returning to live-action ever since Disney closed the doors on ImageMovers Digital, which is exactly what I was hoping that would achieve. Zemeckis may still be finishing his upcoming Yellow Submarine CGI movie, so I'm assuming he's planning to return to live-action with some project following completion on that flick.

I wish we had more to add to this news, but we don't. All I can say is that I'm so very grateful and honestly extremely excited to see Robert Zemeckis return to live-action, especially with another time travel project. For anyone who loves Back to the Future, this is pretty much a huge dream come true. However, the next big question is, how long will it take for this to actually happen. Is it going to be his next project coming up or will we have to wait a few years to actually see this? Whatever the case, we'll definitely let you know, and that includes any new information we hear about Timeless or Zemeckis' return to live action. Stay tuned!

Zemeckis should focus on not messing this up, I am a fan, but I am also skeptic about his ability to ever produce a good movie ever again.

Sounds good. Let's hope he does direct it, and that it lives up to our expectations.

SUPERMAN! Yes. Please Please Please let him do the new Superman film. I have been praying for a director of his action/effects/emotional skills to come on board.
