Star Wars Director George Lucas is known for bringing audiences epic movie experiences and come January 2012, Americans will be treated to what is shapping up to be another classic.

Lucas announced he will be the lead producer on “Red Tails” the upcoming motion picture about the historic Tuskegee Airmen. Starring in the film are Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard.

While the story of the Tuskegee Airmen was made into a television movie with Laurence Fishburne in 1995, this is will be the first big screen coverage. It is a marked departure from the Star War films, which Lucas has spoken publicly about wanting to creatively depart from.
