Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. New film to be made by Lucas :roll:, but the subject is an interesting one - the story of the Tuskegee Airman - the first group of US black military pilots who served in WW II.

    Cuba Gooding Jr . and Terrence Howard will star.
     
  2. Do they win the Battle of Britain, and then win the war by themselves, and only a passing remark about us Brits. I suppose that Tom Cruise will make an appearance.
     
  3. Is Kenny Loggins doing the soundtrack ?
     
  4. There is already a film about them and Cuba Gooding Jr was in that one too
     
  5. Will Samual L Jackson get to play the badass Sqn Leader? Will he get to shoot some muthafuking Germans?

    George Lucas?

    Well its bound to be pants then. Everything he's touched in the past 10 years has turned to sh1t.
     
  7. Lot of buzz in Warbird circles on this one. There is definitely a big push on authenticity and this film being about Flying and Fighting. Lucas has wanted to do a proper air combat film for years , I really thought he'd start with Goodbye Mickey Mouse. Looking forward to this, hoping for more Tora 3 than Pearl Harbor :(

    Though CGI technique has come on since then. For example, this sequence is produced by an enthusiastic amateur. So imagine what it would be like with a couple of Mil thrown at it?
