Terence Blanchard Will Score George Lucas’ Tuskegee Airmen Film “Red Tails”

Terence Blanchard Will Score George Lucas' Tuskegee Airmen Film "Red Tails"

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 today.

Courtesy of Jazz Corner (via The Playlist), it’s been announced that jazzman, and Spike Lee’s favorite composer, Terence Blanchard, will score the film, which will be recorded in Prague this June.

So… this certainly tells us 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 the film (or at least parts of it, in the form of a trailer, clips, etc), by the end of this year.

Stay tuned…
