Scientologists Get Movie Roles, Denzel Exchanging Out-of-Control Trains for Planes, and More

- Oliver Stone has expanded the cast of his adaptation of The Savages, adding the suddenly ubiquitous Blake Lively and old co-workers Uma Thurman and John Travolta, giving us what will likely be our best Pulp Fiction reunion since Snakes on a Plane reunited Samuel L.

- Robert Zemeckis may be taking on his first non-creepy-CGI-shit project since 2000's Cast Away, directing Denzel Washington in Flight, a film about a seemingly heroic commercial pilot whose dramatic landing is called into question when it turns out he had drugs and alcohol in his system.

So some kind of Get Low/Living Wake/Royal Tenenbaum... with Arquettes.
