No, this is not a flop over from the April Fools gag, but it is close. George Lucas is headed back to the bigscreen with a war epic, and today we hear that he has his leads for the all-black ensemble cast with Cuba Gooding Jr, and Terrance Howard.
Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard head the ensemble cast of “Red Tails,” a feature film about the Tuskegee Airmen, the United States’ first all-black aerial combat unit.
The cast of the Lucasfilm project also includes Bryan Cranston, Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Cliff Smith (aka Method Man), Kevin Phillips, Rick Otto, Lee Tergesen, Andre Royo, Ne-Yo and Elijah Kelley.
Anthony Hemingway, who has numerous television credits, will make his feature directorial debut with “Red Tails.”
We already know that Terrance Howard looks sharp in a uniform, and I would like to see Cuba Gooding Jr return to a role where he doesn’t have a vagina.
Lucas is not directing, but it will be his story. Maybe he listened to the fans after all?
