In 1914, "The Great War" - WWI - began in Europe. By 1917, the Allied powers of France, England, Italy and others were on the ropes against the German juggernaut. While millions of young men were dying overseas, people in the United States were arguing that the freedom of others was none of its business. So America choseat firstnot to fight.

Some altruistic young Americans disagreed. They volunteered to fight alongside their counterparts in France, some in the infantry, some in the Ambulance Corps. A handful of others had a different idea: they decided to learn how to fly. The first of them - a squadron of only 38 - became known as the Lafayette Escadrille. In time, America joined their cause. The Escadrille pilots became legendary. FLYBOYS is inspired by their story.

Flyboys is directed by Academy Award winner Tony Bill (Producer of The Sting) and produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, The Patriot, Stargate) and Marc Frydman (Commander In Chief, The Jacket). James Franco (Spider-Man 1 and 2, Tristan & Isolde, Annapolis) stars with Martin Henderson (The Ring, Torque) and Jean Reno (The Pink Panther, The Da Vinci Code). An MGM release, Flyboys will open in the United States and Canada on September 29th, 2006.
