Fans of The Hurt Locker's Brian Geraghty is in talks to take Flight with Denzel Washington. One of our favorite Jarheads is close to signing on the dotted to co-star in Robert Zemeckis' drama flick. For those just tuning in, the film centers on an alcoholic and drug-addicted pilot who saves his plane after it malfunctions and is labeled a hero.

Geraghty will play co-pilot to Washington's Sully Sullenberger-esque pilot, a man who finds religion after the crash. How does he fit into the change that Denzil's character makes while the FAA tries to sweep the evidence to the side? Looking to join the flight club are Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, and Kelly Reilly who will be playing a game of shadows with Sherlock Holmes in this year's anticipated sequel. 

Director Robert Zemeckis can get some pretty interesting performances out of Hollywood's best stars. Are you excited to see what he can do with a live-action film? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
