While Terence Blanchard has announced his involvement in the WWII drama Red Tails almost two years ago, some details on the film’s music have finally been revealed. Jazz Corner (via The Playlist) reports that the score will be recorded this June in Prague. The movie produced by George Lucas is based on the true story of the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II and tells the story of a group of African-American combat pilots at battle.  The film stars Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard and Bryan Cranston. The project will be the first non-Star Wars or Indiana Jones picture from Lucasfilm in almost 20 years. The drama is directed by Anthony Hemingway (Treme, True Blood) and John Ridley (U-Turn, Three Kings) has written the screenplay based on an story by Lucas. Rick McCallum (Star Wars prequels, Young Indiana Jones series) is serving as a producer. No release date announcement has been made, but the recording of the music next month indicates that Red Tails finally seems to be nearing completion.

As reported last year, Blanchard also has the martial arts action movie Bunraku coming up. The film has recently been picked up for domestic distribution by ARC Entertainment. The movie directed by Guy Moshe and starring Josh Harnett, Ron Perlman, Woody Harrelson and Demi Moore premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival. The project tells the story of a young man who has spent his life searching for revenge only to find himself up against a bigger challenge than he originally bargained for. A release later this year or in early 2012 is expected.
