Lucasfilm announced today that 20th Century Fox will release the George Lucas-produced WWII fighter pilot film about the Tuskegee Airmen on January 20, 2012. From the official press release, director Anthony Hemingway:
“I am humbled and honored to direct the story of the Tuskegee Airmen — heroes who have paved the way so others could have the opportunity to pursue their dreams,” said Hemingway. “To be selected by George Lucas and Rick [McCallum] to direct this film was more than my wildest dreams come true. It’s been a blessing to work with them, along with the amazingly talented artists at Industrial Light & Magic. I’ve grown a lot on many levels from this experience. As director, I had the fortune to work with a highly skilled crew from the Czech Republic, U.K. and the U.S., along with a remarkably talented group of actors. The resonant beauty, strength and dedication of our heroes is reflected in the powerful ensemble cast.”
