Fox 2000 is behind the picture, which will tell the true story of WWII’s Women Air Force Service Pilots, the groundbreaking women who were the first ever to fly for the U.S. military.
Kail and his production company Old 320 Sycamore will develop and produce the film along with Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar. In August 2016, Kail also signed a deal with Twentieth Century Fox to develop, supervise, and potentially direct series for broadcast and cable television.
Kail received a Tony nomination in 2008 for directing In the Heights. Last year, he won an Emmy for his direction on Fox’s Grease Live! He is currently attached to a new movie musical adaptation of Oliver Twist alongside rapper Ice Cube.
