According to Deadline, Robert Zemeckis has dropped out of Warner Bros.' drama, Replay, as the director moves forward with the Denzel Washington starred Paramount thriller, Flight.

Warner Bros. is looking for another director for the Jason Smilovic-scripted Replay.

Flight is written by John Gatins, and centers on a commercial airline pilot named Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington). When his plane malfunctions and a crash seems imminent, he saves the day with some heroic flying and manages to land the plane with minimal casualties. He's instantly hailed as a hero, but as an investigation into the cause of the crash unfolds, it becomes clear that he was flying under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The film is the pilot's journey as he is encouraged to wear a hero label he thinks he doesn't deserve, while the pilot's union and airline try to keep the facts under cover because of the high stakes involved.
