'Hamilton' Director to Helm WWII Female Pilots Movie 'Silver Wings'

WWII Female Pilots Drama Silver Wings Places Hamilton's Thomas Kail In The Cockpit

From Broadway to the silver screen, Deadline is reporting that Hamilton's Thomas Kail has signed on to direct World War II pic Silver Wings for Fox 2000. Tony Award-winning HAMILTON director Thomas Kail will develop to direct the drama that follows the true story of WWII's Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), the first women to ever fly for the United States military.

Kail and his production company Old 320 Sycamore will develop and produce the film along with Anonymous Content's Michael Sugar. Only in 2009, after a decades-long battle, are the women's WWII contributions finally honored, when they are granted the Congressional Gold Medal and officially recognized as military veterans.
