UPDATE: THE AP REPORTED YESTERDAY, GEORGE LUCAS IS DIRECTING, BUT ACCORDING TO NEW REPORTS, HE IS NOT HELMING THE FILM ABOUT TUSKEGEE AIRMEN. READ THIS ARTICLE.

The film has a working title of "Red Tails."

I'm very excited to see this sequel to "Batman Begins." Director Chris Nolan and company did such an amazing job last time, and now, with the advent of Heath Ledger's passing, "The Dark Knight" is becoming the much-hyped, much-talked-about summer movie!
