Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes one of the most successful men in Hollywood, Robert Zemeckis, for an insightful and honest face to face conversation.
With his latest project, the Denzel Washington-led film "Flight," currently enjoying tremendous commercial success, the man behind such classics as "Back to the Future" and "Forrest Gump" reveals his process and motivation for film making:
"You know, I don't think about it that often," says Zemeckis, on having directed 16 films that have grossed four-billion dollars worldwide. "I never made a movie thinking about the money ... I've only ever made a movie thinking about, you know, can I make this a good movie? And the money has come ... as frosting on the cake, so to speak."
Having made the professional decision to cast Piers Morgan in a cameo role in "Flight," Zemeckis opens up to his actor about the financial goal he attaches to each of his projects:
"I've done this my entire career," he tells the man who plays himself in the drama about an airline pilot who saves a flight from crashing. "If the film makes a one dollar profit, I'm happy, because then the film exists and nobody got hurt and that's my job."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening as Zemeckis reveals the greatest actors he's ever worked with. (spoiler alert: Morgan didn't make the cut.)
