The film tells the true story of a group of African American pilots in the Tuskegee training program who, having faced segregation while kept mostly on the ground during World War II, are called into duty under the guidance of Col. A.J. Bullard.
DAVID OYELOWO stars as Joe ‘Lightning’ Little, one of the tight-knit group of pilots.
Executive produced by George Lucas and distributed by Twentieth Century Fox, Red Tails is a high-flying action epic inspired by the heroic exploits of the first all African American aerial combat unit. Anthony Hemingway (The Wire) directs this gripping World War II actioner, which features a powerful ensemble cast including Cuba Gooding Jnr., Terrence Howard, Ne-Yo, Nate Parker and Bryan Cranston.
