Robert Zemeckis in talks to direct <strong><em>Replay</em></strong> for Warner Bros.
Robert Zemeckis is currently in serious talks to direct the Warner Bros. project Replay, an adaptation of the 1987 best-selling novel by Ken Grimwood.

Back in October, we reported that Ben Affleck was in talks to direct the project, although he decided to make the Iranian hostage movie Argo instead.

Replay centers on a radio journalist who dies in 1988 from a heart attack, only to re-awaken as his 18-year-old self in 1963, with all of his memories and experiences from his last life intact. Every time he reaches the year 1988, he dies, although he can make different choices each time around, with his main focus trying to prevent the death of his daughter.

Jason Smilovic (Lucky Number Slevin) wrote the screenplay, which is adapted from the Ken Grimwood novel. Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas is producing Replay.

Last week we reported that Robert Zemeckis is directing a new project entitled Flight for Paramount. It is believed that Robert Zemeckis will direct Replay first and then Flight, since Denzel Washington hasn't fully committed to Flight yet.
