Trailer for the George Lucas-Produced WWII Film ‘Red Tails’

30 July 2011 12:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

George Lucas began developing Red Tails around 1988 and has compared it to Tucker: The Man and His Dream as “a story too good to be true”. Thomas Carter was his original choice to direct and a number of writers worked on the project until John Ridley was finally hired in 2007 to write the final screenplay and Anthony Hemingway was finally chosen to direct in 2008. In researching the film, Lucasfilm invited some of the surviving Tuskegee Airmen to Skywalker Ranch, where they were interviewed about their experiences during World War II and supposedly Lucasfilm was also given access to the original mission logbooks used by some of the pilots.

A new trailer was just released for Red Tails accompanying the already released official synopsis seen below. Judging by the trailer, the action looks fantastic and the cast is great; it features Terrence Howard, NeYo, Andre Royo, Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., »

Though Redford is still attached to star in the film, Mystic River and L.A. Confidential writer Brian Helgeland will step up to direct the film instead in addition to delivering an all-new script for the story which actually won't completely focus on Robinson's breaking of the color barrier in baseball. Instead, Redford told 24 Frames the film will focus more on the relationship between Robinson and Rickey. Redford says, "No one really knows the Rickey part, the political maneuvers and the partnership they had to share. It's the story underneath the story »
