War Birds flies

So we have BATTLESHIP, the board game-turned-naval/alien combat motion picture coming down the road. But how about looking up in the sky instead?

WAR BIRDS aims to do just that, and already has a head start on BATTLESHIP due to its non-association with a Mattel product and the fact there don’t appear to be any aliens in sight. But as it turns out, the actual plot is pretty WTF anyway.

"Birds" 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. 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.

Underground. Illegal. Aerial. Combat. YES.

Despite the fact that by literal definition those words make no sense together, this sounds absolutely superb. Illegal real life aerial combat! How the hell does that work? I can’t think of one thing you could do that would actually attract MORE attention to everyone within a twenty mile radius.

Whatever, I don’t care, and I expect this to be supremely awesome. Look for the Michael Chait written and directed feature in 2011 after it’s done shooting in Michigan.

Extra Tidbit: Michigan? *Looks out window* Damn, nothing yet.
