Yesterday we reported on a movie that is going into production called War Birds, which follows an Air Force veteran-turned-reckless airshow re-enactment pilot as he gets pulled into the underground culture of illegal, real-life aerial combat.
I love the concept of this movie and there's no doubt it is going to be a fast paced action-packed thrill ride. I thought it was going to be a Fast & Furious type movie with airplanes, but now that I've seen this test footage for the film, it's going to be much more than that and much better. I couldn't be more excited to see it! It looks like it's gonna be awesome!
Thanks to our friends at Firstshowing for pointing it out! Watch the test footage for the film below and tell us what you think!
Shooting is scheduled for the summer in Michigan using all real airplanes and aerial sequences, including authentic P-51 Mustangs, P-38 Lightnings, F4U Corsairs and a B-17 Flying Fortress as well as modern military helicopters and jets.
The original story was written by Michael Chait and he will produce and direct the screenplay written by Josh Staman and Bryan Binder. J. Todd Harris (Bottle Shock) and screenwriter Richard Jefferies (Tron: Legacy), who will polish the script, are producing. Titanic cinematographer Russell Carpenter will serve as a visual consultant.
