Gil Kenan was directing a short film titled "The Lark", and caught the attention of Robert Zemeckis. That got him the job of directing the 2006 film "Monster House", which Zemeckis executive produced with Steven Spielberg. That got him a nomination in the 2006 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Now according to Variety, he is picked by Zemeckis again to direct a movie he is producing.

Kenan is set to direct the $150 million fantasy adventure movie "Airman", in which Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey are producing through their ImageMovers banner in collaboration with Disney.

The story is about a boy by the name of Connor who lives on an island off the coast of Ireland, where his father is the king's bodyguard. When the king is murdered, Conor is blamed for the crime and thrown into prison. While in prison, he spend his time designing a flying machine that he will use to escape and save his family.

The movie screenplay will be written by Ann Peacock, who is best known for writing "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe".
