This is a thread for discussing George Lucas's WWII epic "Red Tails". I believe this could be his greatest film of all time and I am eagerly awaiting its arrival! GL on "Redtails": "It's a story of African-American fighter pilots. They were the best - the only escorts in World War Two that never lost a bomber. It's pretty inspiring." The pilots referred to by GL are the Tuskegee Airmen. From Wikipedia: "The Tuskegee Airmen was the popular name of a group of African American pilots who flew with distinction for the United States Army Air Corps during World War II." I'll be posting whatever info I can find on the Tuskegee Airmen and on the "Redtails" project in this Thread. Please add your own info, movie speculation or updates! Rick McCallum from the March 2006 online edition of Empire Magazine: But where does this leave Lucas?s long-cherished World War II fighter pilots film Red Tails? ?We?re working on Red Tails right now. George is writing the script as we speak. He?s just finished the Indiana Jones script, and Steven?s having that rewritten and a few things done. And then we start hopefully in October or November looking for another writer for Red Tails when George puts together his ideas of what he wants it to be. Then hopefully next year we?ll start on that.? GL started interviewing the surviving pilots personally, and recording the conversations on video with a small crew, in January 2006. Maybe they'll be used on the eventual DVD? IMO the "Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" television series was GL's greatest achivement. He has a real feeling for history and a unique way of presenting it. Acting as executive producer, hiring a serious screewnwriter to polish his first draft, and a truly talented director to helm the picture, with ILM at his disposal (imagine the battle scenes they could cook up with GL's input!), "Red Tails" could well be the ultimate George Lucas movie! Ideal lineup: George Lucas: Story & Executive Producer Rick McCallum: Producer 1st Choice - Spike Lee: Director 2nd Choice - Anthony Minghella: Director William Monahan: Screenplay Cast should include: Samuel Jackson and Laurence Fishburne. More to come. Post your own thoughts & info!
