Harrison Attached to TV Project About the World War II Era
During an interview with actor John Rhys-Davies – who played the role of Sallah in the Indiana Jones movies – he mentioned that, pending the project’s financing being finalized, he expects to reunite with Harrison Ford for a TV project (Yes! a TV project) about the World War II era. The project aims to shoot early next year in Louisiana and China with Rome creator William J. “Bill” MacDonald producing although Rhys-Davies said there is not a director involved yet.
What is the project about?
The project is apparently based on the story of a volunteer fighter squadron known as “Flying Tigers” formed by General Claire Chennault to help the Chinese fight against the Empire of Japan before the United States entered World War II. The volunteers arrived in American-made P-40 War Hawks, planes famous for their gaping tiger’s teeth logo. It would seem likely that Harrison would play General Chennault, however, it has not been mentioned who will play each character.
This would be Harrison’s first foray into dramatic TV production since his appearance in an episode of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles in 1993.
Note: Later, Harrison Ford’s publicist Ina Treciokas told IGN that “the project is in development – there is a long road to go before this is a real possibility.”
