    I'm looking forward to this one.
    Really liked the older made for TV version from 1995 with Lawrence Fishburne.

      Let's hope it is an accurate portrayal of a brave and legendary US Fighter squadron & no Gung ho hyperbole.
      In the past, US 'True Story' war films have been garnished with diatribe, over heroics & artistic license. This is not needed.
      What is needed is a good film about WW2 airmen that will stand as a testament to the part played by the airmen & personnel of the USAF and 'at last' the black contingent.

      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
      All human ills he can subdue,
      Or with a bauble or medal
      Can win mans heart for you;
      And many a blessing know to stew
      To make a megloamaniac bright;
      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
      The Pixie is a little shite.

        Judging by George Lucas' ... er ... limited record, I won't hold much hope for this one. I think it'll be a turkey - filled with eye-watering special effects, of course!

          I'm inclined to just stick with the documentary I have about them.

          Movies of military history are only useful when there isn't any documentary footage to indulge.

          I generally prefer grainy old film footage over fancy glitzy modern filming technology. I'd rather be seeing the real thing.

          Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
          I didn't for a long time either.

            Pity Lucas decided to try an ride an old horse. At a minimum, he should have come up with something new, but this comes across as entirely politically motivated.

            Is he looking for a Cabinet posting as First Cinematographer?

              Maybe not..........there are plenty of flying P-51's, so maybe they'll do it "old school".

                It would have been nice if he kept going with the Star Wars trioligy. Which is what he is good at.

                  I really enjoyed that one too. As I recall, it was an HBO produced made for TV film. Lawrence Fishburne and Cuba Gooding Jr. were great in that film.

                    Yes...I can see it now: IMDB The Tuskegee Airman and the Comprehensive Health Care Reform Act.

                      Well let's hope so. It'll be great to see those old warbirds flying en masse again.

                      But if I know George Lucas, he'll overdo it somehow.

                      Pity. I think the Tuskegee airmen deserved much better than that.

                            Could we at least wait until itís started to be made before talking about it as a disaster in the past tense?

                              If there is no action figure or other toy involved he may be trying to create a good film to justify his career.

                              Having said that, creating Star Wars and then involved with the fantastic (and better) sequel 'Yes Luke....' he will always be forgiven imo for the prequel.
