We've long wondered WTF happened to the George Lucas-produced Tuskegee Airmen actioner, Red Tails; very little news has surfaced since last year's rumor that Lucas was unhappy with what had been done with the film at that point, and had essentially taking it over from director Anthony Hemingway and writer John Ridley. Although, Lucas' people denied those rumors.

We've long wondered WTF happened to the George Lucas-produced Tuskegee Airmen actioner, Red Tails; very little news has surfaced since last year's rumor that Lucas was unhappy with what had been done with the film at that point, and had essentially taking it over from director Anthony Hemingway and writer John Ridley. Although, Lucas' people denied those rumors.

Still, it's been a long while since anything has been reported on this... until news surfaced about a week ago, which announced that jazz-man, and Spike Lee's favorite composer, Terence Blanchard, will score the film, which will be recorded in Prague this month.

And now, today, director Anthony Hemingway revealed, via Twitter, that Red Tails will be in theaters in January 2012!

Whether or not that's *official* remains to be seen, but, he is the director. Nothing from LucasFilm yet though. But with both pieces of news, I think it's safe to say that it's not entirely a dead project, and gives us some idea as to where exactly in the production process it stands.

At this rate, we just might see a trailer, clips, etc, in the next month or two, if not sooner.

The film’s 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.

Stay tuned...
