First Look: Impressive BTS Photos from George Lucas' Red Tails
If only this didn't have George Lucas involved, I might actually be pretty damn excited for it. Earlier today, some new behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Red Tails, the Lucas-produced movie about the WWII Tuskegee Airmen flying squadron, appeared on the FGV Schmidle website (via SlashFilm). FGV is a rental company for cameras and equipment and apparently they wanted to show off some of their stuff that was used on this movie and now we get a pretty awesome behind-the-scenes first look at Red Tails. Maybe I'm just a sucker for war movies, but those old planes they're using look pretty damn cool. Check ’em out below!
I've only featured four of the better shots, but you can see more on the FGV site here and here. Red Tails is the project that we exclusively revealed was getting reshoots with George Lucas directing them. Originally, TV director Anthony Hemingway (seen in this shot) directed the movie and is still on-board (according to some sources) to finish the film. Besides all that, though, we're not exactly sure when this is going to hit theaters because they still haven't even announced a distributor yet. Anyway, I'm pretty much sold on this after seeing this photos, mainly because I'm excited to see an authentic WWII dogfighting movie like this.
