    I read a more thorough synopsis yesterday and I've got to say, it would be AWESOME to have Zemeckis direct this!! To have him do a "sea monster" film that is also a period piece......holy sh*t that gets me excited just thinking about it!!!

    Glad to have Zemeckis returning to live action. All that motion capture animation stuff, while good, was getting really old.

    This is great news!!! I hope he does this before (or immediately after) Flight.
