John Campea at the Movie Blog posted yesterday about Red Tails, a (2009) film that George Lucas will be producing. The film will be set in World War II and will cover the Tuskagee Airmen, who were the first African-American pilots during the conflict. John Ridley (Three Kings) is set to be the writer.
I remember hearing about this at least 1-2 years ago, but now that the Star Wars films are over (or are they?) for the most part, I can see this getting more press later on this year.
