Last week I had the pleasure of meeting with another Hollywood A-Lister (I know, tough job). His name is Bob Zemeckis and you'll know him as one of the most successful directors working today. From Forrest Gump to Back to the Future and many greats between, Zemeckis has made quite the name for himself. Now, after almost a decade working with motion capture, he's back to filmmaking in its most conventional form, with the live action drama, Flight.
I caught up with Bob to chat about working with one of the greatest actors on the planet, Denzel Washington, what was so interesting to him about this story and how crazy it is that 25 years later, people still ask him about the career defining Back to the Future series.
I also sat down with the beautiful Kelly Reilly. This young actress has already impressed us with roles in TV drama Above Suspicion opposite Ciaran Hinds, Pride and Prejudice, Sherlock Holmes and more. In her first big US movie role, how did she find playing the romantic lead/heroine addict opposite Denzel Washington? Kelly also took time to chat to me about her next movie starring more Irish actors than you could shake a stick at, Cavalry, in which she plays Brendan Gleeson's daughter. She's got red hair too; fitting.
Flight hits cinemas on February 1st.
