Lucasfilm: 'Red Tails reports inaccurate'

Rex Features

Lucasfilm has denied reports that its World War II drama Red Tails is to undergo extensive reshoots with George Lucas at the helm.

Rumours surfaced earlier today claiming that producers Lucas and Rick McCallum were unhappy with director Anthony Hemingway and were planning to make significant changes to the movie, which centres on pilots overcoming racism within the armed forces to form the first African-American fighter squadron in US military history.

"The story that is circulating about production on Red Tails is completely inaccurate," Lucasfilm told DS.

"George Lucas and Rick McCallum are very pleased with the work Anthony Hemingway did directing the film and additional shooting that is scheduled to take place was built into production before it began, as it is on all our films."

Expected in US cinemas this year, Red Tails stars Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr and Bryan Cranston.
