Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr. have joined young actor Tristan Wilds of the new 90210 in the cast of the WWII drama Red Tails. Anthony Hemingway will direct the period piece.
The film will center on the true story of the 332nd Fighter Group, an elite unit of all-black escort pilots who were dubbed "Red Tails." George Lucas is producing.
Wilds will portray Ray "Ray Gun" Knight, who becomes a wingman for one of his friends. He is nearly blinded in Nazi-occupied Italy. He and his cohort Marty eventually face prejudice from the U.S. military and the enemy.
