Film Red Tails shot in istria

Only a few months after Nicolas Cage finished shooting at Cape Kamenjak, istria saw the arrival of yet another Hollywood crew, headed by George Lucas, famous producer and director, and creator of the world popular Star Wars and Indian Jones series. The crew and cast had come to shoot "Red Tails", based on the true story of the first Afro-American aerial combat unit of the US army.

Chosen for filming were the picturesque towns Groznjan, Buje, Motovun and Prague, located on the green hills across northern Istria and providing splendid views of the Istrian countryside. These old fortifications with their preserved stone-flagged streets, authentic facades, squares and churches were perfect for Lucas' new film. All that was needed were a few signs, some details and extras in costume to portray the spirit and appearance of the towns of southern Italy in which the film's story takes place during the Second World War.

"Red Tails" was directed by Anthony Hemingway, also the director of "CSI: NY", while Cuba Gooding jr. was cast in the leading role. The film is coming soon to theatres around the world.
