The Lucas Bombers

Instapundit links to this article about the trouble George Lucas had in getting his movie made about the Tuskegee Airmen. It notes:
And still, over the course of 23 years, Lucas could not find a single one of the Hollywood studios that would be interested in the project. Did the studio gatekeepers deem the material not “marketable” enough? Lucas certainly seems to think the studios saw the African American cast as a liability.
Hollywood not being in to finding a way to shove another piece of PC drivel down the throats of America? The mind boggles at the possibility! However, the article also notes:
Maybe the movie is just plain awful...
Ahh there we go, so some studio math is in order:
"George Lucas" + "Not Star Wars" = "Crap that can't float on previous success"
