A new bombshell of a rumor hit the web yesterday and today, it turns out that there was no truth to the story after all. We received a statement from LucasFilm regarding the story about Red Tails that First Showing posted yesterday, saying there is no truth to the story at all. Here's the LucasFilm statement:
"On behalf of Lucasfilm, I wanted to let you know the story that is circulating about production on Red Tails is completely inaccurate. 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."
The original story indicated that Lucas was unhappy with director Anthony Hemmingway's work and was going to direct reshoots of the film himself, but it seems that these reshoots are just routine.
Red Tails stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Bryan Cranston, Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Kevin Phillips, Andre Royo and Elijah Kelley. The film currently doesn't have a release date as of yet.
