War Birds movie moving forward with Michael Chait

TMU Pictures is reportedly moving forward with the action-adventure film War Birds.

The project 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.

Michael Chait penned the original story and will produce and direct the screenplay written by Josh Staman and Bryan Binder. Titanic cinematographer Russell Carpenter will serve as a visual consultant:

“I love big, exciting, action-adventure movies, especially when they are shot live, in camera,” Chait said. “Growing up the son of an artist and a pilot, I’ve always worked the drama and production value of aviation into my movies. That’s still the best way to truly immerse an an audience in the experience.”
