ABSTRACT
The article reports that film producer and director George Lucas hired John Ridley to write "Red Tails," a World War II action adventure about the Tuskegee Airmen based on a story by Lucas. Lucas has a long passion for the Tuskegee Airmen, whose planes were distinguished by the red-painted tails, which gives the film its title. According to Ridley, the industrial light and music (ILM) will make the fight sequences come alive and it's more like flying in a fighter plane.
