George Lucas Produces “Red Tails” – Tuskegee Airmen Movie

Red Tails








Leslie Odom Jr, Michael B. Jordan, Nate Parker, Kevin Phillips, David Oyelowo and Elijah Kelley in “Red Tails.”

It was 1994 when hollywood heavyweight George Lucas last produced a film that was not connected to his Indiana Jones or Star Wars sci-fi action/adventure franchises; but now, his long in-the-works film about a very distinct group of WW II aviators will be released this Friday January 20th. It was in March of 2009 when Lucasfilm Ltd. announced that Red Tails, a motion picture about the famed Tuskegee Airmen (the African American military pilots of the 332nd fighter group) would be made. The film was directed by Anthony Hemingway, who has directed various acclaimed television series such as Treme, True Blood and CSI: NY, while its cast features the talents of Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard and Bryan Cranston, as well as Tristan Wilds (of The Wire and 90210), Cliff Smith (better known as Wu-Tang Clan rapper, Method Man), R & B crooner Ne-Yo and Elijah Kelley.

Mr. Lucas, executive producer of Red Tails, said in a statement: “I’ve wanted to do this film for a great many years. So it is especially gratifying to see it all come together.” He added: “The Tuskegee Airmen were such superb pilots that it was essential for us to create visual effects that would live up to their heroism and put audiences in the cockpit with them. They were only in their early 20s when they performed these amazing feats. They became the best of the best — the ‘top guns.’”

Hit us up with a review of the flick after you see it this Friday!
