?Red Tails? Gets An Unofficial Release Window Fans have been waiting to find out when we?d get to see Lucasfilm?s first non-Star Wars or Indiana Jones film in two decades and today we might have our answer. Anthony Hemingway, the director of The Tuskegee Airmen film Red Tails, produced by George Lucas, just tweeted that the film will be released in January 2012. With the recent news that Terence Blanchard will be scoring the film this month in Prague, that sounds just about right. Not that there?s a rush, Lucas has been developing the film for 20 years and it began shooting several years ago. I think we can expect the film to have a limited release in December (for Oscar consideration) then go wide in January of 2012, most likely the 4-day Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, which has become a great time to release a film.
