After many delays, George Lucas' long-discussed Red Tails has finally received a release date.

The film, which details the plight of the first team of African American fighter pilots (the Tuskegee Airmen) to fly in combat during World War II, has been something the Lucas, who is billed as both story writer and executive producer, has talked about making for years. John Ridley was tapped to write the screenplay in 2007 and the film was cast in 2009.

Looks good. I have high hopes for this one. I've been hearing about it since before the release of Revenge of the Sith. It's interesting that Lucas decided to give up the directing reigns, but I think it was probably the right choice.

Looking forward to seeing it in January.

I myself heard about this a while back and I think it's going to be great. I will look forward to seeing what the finished product looks like.

It won't be the most historically accurate film, and there will be many things wrong with how the flight sequences will be shown, but anything that brings the spotlight on the problems faced by the Tuskegee airman, as well as inspriing people to find out more about them, is always welcome.
