A trailer for the film is supposed to debut tonight at the Airventure 2011 event in Wisconsin, so expect it'll turn up on the web soon thereafter, and we'll finally get to see our first look at the long-in-development film. By the way, if any of our readers will be at Airventure tonight for the screening, please let me know.

Of course, I'm talking about the George Lucas-produced Tuskegee Airmen actioner, Red Tails, directed by Anthony Hemingway, written by John Ridley, with a cast that includes cast includes: Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr., Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Method Man, Lee Tergesen, Ne-Yo, Elijah Kelley, Andre Royo and Jesse Williams.

Terence Blanchard is scoring the film.

Back in June, director Anthony Hemingway revealed, via Twitter, that Red Tails will be in theaters in January 2012, though there was no official confirmation of that from Lucas or his people.

This morning, Movieline reported that Lucasfilm finally confirmed the film's exact release date at January 20th 2012. So it's an official date then!

I'll be keeping an eye out for that trailer.

Stay tuned...
