Tuskegee Airmen to be subject of George Lucas film
I'm not going to quote the whole article, as it's rather long.
However, given his free and loose regard to history (particularly in pretending everything thirty years ago happened totally different from the way every other source records it as happening), do we really need an historical film by Lucas?
Is this his way of trying to convince people he's still a serious filmmaker? I'm not trying to impose a judgment call on the prequels here, but he has lost a lot of clout since TPM came out.
More importantly, when does Ahmed Best get to pick which of the Tuskegee Airmen he gets to play? And will Hasbro hold a midnight sale for the figures?
Sorry. To me, this is akin to Stan Lee writing an academic treatise on the economy of Botswana in the 1970s.
