George Lucas is still one of the most respected names in film today. And despite the temptation to rest on his laurels, he is still a hard working guy. Amidst an interview anticipated to be all about Star Wars projects, we find out a little tidbit about his WWII feature Red Tails.
ComingSoon.net has an interview with Papa Smurf himself:
As a brief taster for that interview, we found out how things were going on Red Tails, the film he’s producing about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first all African-American pilot squad during World War II. With all the work that Mr. Lucas has been doing on his two upcoming television shows, we wondered about his future working in film and if he still had time to work on the war epic written by John Ridley.
“As a matter of fact, I’m working on it tomorrow,” he told us, much to our surprise. “We’re getting towards a script, and probably start shooting before the end of the year, and it should come out next year, maybe.
Lucas dragged John Ridley in on the deal to write, and with any luck Darth Flannel will remain in a producer role. George has a gift for inspiring and storytelling, and this story just oozes of inspiration.
A director has not yet been named. We can hope.
