Yes that’s right folks, Aml Ameen star of many a UK TV Drama and both Kidult and Adulthood is set to star in ‘Red Tails’ – movie based around the lives of the Tuskegee Airmen.
The movie is being produced by George Lucas and is also being directed by Anthony Hemmingway (who directed the Wire)…so Aml is not doing things by half as you can see.
The film has a number of other young Black actors/entertainers in it including Jazmine Sullivan. It’s currently still in production but I’ll definately be on the lookout for a trailer.
*thinking aloud* maybe Aml will get a pseudo American/British accent like Idris Elba, lol.

I’m very happy about the role I have recieved in my first Hollywood film. To all my fellow dreamers in The City, and the UK, let this show you that it CAN be done. You’ve Seen me from Kidulthood to The Bill moved onto Fallout, Silent Witness, this all started out with a dream, and a belief that I can do it. I’m not where I want to be yet, but this is progress.
So when you see me in my small role in the Hollywood Film, root for me, shout me out! Because I am you! And YOU can do it to!!!
1 LOVE Amlx
