Along as exec producer, Lucas was heavily involved in editing and also was involved in the directing when it came to reshoots.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE) -- A high-flying action epic inspired by the heroic exploits of the first all African-American aerial combat unit, the Lucasfilm Ltd. production of Red Tails will launch on January 20, 2012, released by Twentieth Century Fox. Produced by Rick McCallum and Charles Floyd Johnson, the gripping WWII actioner is directed by Anthony Hemingway (“Treme,” “The Wire,” “Battlestar Galactica”).

“I am humbled and honored to direct the story of the Tuskegee Airmen – heroes who have paved the way so others could have the opportunity to pursue their dreams,” said Hemingway. “To be selected by George Lucas and Rick to direct this film was more than my wildest dreams come true. It’s been a blessing to work with them, along with the amazingly talented artists at Industrial Light & Magic. I’ve grown a lot on many levels from this experience. As director, I had the fortune to work with a highly skilled crew from the Czech Republic, U.K. and the U.S., along with a remarkably talented group of actors. The resonant beauty, strength and dedication of our heroes is reflected in the powerful ensemble cast.”

Red Tails stars Oscar® winner Cuba Gooding Jr. (Jerry Maguire), Oscar nominee Terrence Howard (Crash), Emmy® winner Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Nate Parker (The Secret Life of Bees, The Great Debaters), David Oyelowo (The Last King of Scotland, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Tristan Wilds (“90210”), Grammy® Award winner Cliff Smith aka Method Man (“The Wire”), Kevin Phillips (Pride), Rick Otto (“The Wire”), Lee Tergesen (Monster), Andre Royo (“Heroes”), Grammy-Award winner Ne-Yo (Stomp the Yard), Elijah Kelley (Hairspray), Marcus T. Paulk (Take the Lead), Leslie Odom Jr. (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Michael B. Jordan (“Friday Night Lights,” Chronicle) and Daniela Ruah (“NCIS”).

“I've wanted to do this film for a great many years,” said George Lucas, executive producer of Red Tails. “So it is especially gratifying to see it all come together. It has been a real pleasure to work with Anthony and the extraordinary cast on a project that we all passionately believe in. 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,” Lucas added. “They became the best of the best—the top guns. It is an honor to bring to the screen a story inspired by their heroics.”

The official teaser trailer will be released on Yahoo.com at 9 am PDT Friday.

SYNOPSIS:

1944. As the war in Europe continues to take its toll on Allied forces, the Pentagon brass has no recourse but to consider unorthodox options – including the untried and untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country – and the fate of the free world.

    I also love that I see at least 5 people from the wire in the cat, probably more (Wallace, cheese, bubbles, mike, and I don't recognize the only guy with the wire in his past stuff). My question is: where Omar and stringer?

    No Will Smith though.

  • JasconiusJasconius sword criminal mad onlineRegistered User regular
    They couldn't get EVERY black guy because there was already a tuskeegee airmen movie like ten or fifteen years ago and it has Laurence Fishburne in it

    it would be weird for him to be in both

    I'm super-wary of anything Lucas does, but this has potential.

    You fuck wit' Die Antwoord, you fuck wit' da army.
  • JasconiusJasconius sword criminal mad onlineRegistered User regular
    Lucas will benefit from being freed from the expectations of his accidental successes.

    He is clearly capable of producing good action movies.

    The only way this can be worse than basically any of the action movie crap coming out this summer is if it turns out the enemy pilots are Nazi Alien Robots.

    I'll give him the benefit of the doubt here and go see it in theaters.

    Hey I might actually watch that Tower Heist movie.

    Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Eddie Murphy? That is not a bad cast.

    Does it involve Don Glover as Spider-Man?
