A WWII action-adventure picture being executive produced by Mr. Star Wars himself, George Lucas, has made some headway in the casting department.
According to Variety, Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard, Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr, and Bryan Cranston have signed on to star in Red Tails, about the Tuskegee Airmen. The cast already included Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Method Man, Lee Tergesen, Ne-Yo, Elijah Kelley, Andre Royo and Jesse Williams.
Anthony Hemingway is directing the film for the Lucasfilm production company which will soon begin shooting in Europe.
It’s nice to see that Cuba is going to be doing something that might actually show people why he got that Oscar in the first place, because he hasn’t put out anything worth a damn since the epic Alaskan survival tale that was Snow Dogs. Hopefully he won’t have a part the size of his Pearl Harbor bit.
