Washington to star in Flight film?

Denzel Washington could soon be taking Flight with Robert Zemeckis.

The American Gangster actor is reported to be starring in the director's new airborne thriller, where he would play a heroic pilot who rescues his passengers, said Los Angeles Times' 24 Frames.

Flight - Robert's first live-action film in more than a decade - is expected to start shooting in the autumn, but is still in early development stages.

A Paramount spokeswoman and the film's producer both declined to comment.

Robert, whose last live-action film was Cast Away with Tom Hanks, previously directed The Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol.

Denzel, who was last seen in thriller Unstoppable, has been busy filming another thriller, Safe House, with Ryan Reynolds and is expected to start work on the big-screen adaptation of Robert Ludlum's The Matarese Circle with Tom Cruise.
