Aaron McGruder, the creator of the comic strip and cartoon “The Boondocks” has added a new project to his resume by co-writing the George Lucas produced movie on the Tuskegee Airmen, “Red Tails.”

McGruder’s “Boondocks” cartoon and comic strip was a biting satire of politics and pop culture and has caused controversy by mocking Condoleezza Rice, BET and the Reverend Al Sharpton.

The Daily Beast reports:

“About two years ago I got a call from my agent asking if I wanted to meet with Lucas to talk about the script,’’ remembers McGruder. “I was like, ‘Yes I would!’ I’m a Stars Wars guy and also the son of a military pilot, so it was the best of both worlds for me to do a project like this.’’

“That was my biggest contribution to the project, making it more of an action-hero type film,’’ says McGruder. “I used my comic strip experience to make the script have a faster pace. There have been other movies on the Tuskegee Airmen, so I wanted to make sure the audience had a different view of these men and some give them a different story. I think George wanted to strike a balance between the history of their story and action. We did both, which means this film has something for older people who know the story, and younger people who aren’t so familiar with the story and like action.’’
