There can be. But based on the trailer, this one is almost an exact duplicate of it and, unlike The Tuskegee Airmen, this one does absolutely nothing to celebrate the actual people they're portraying.

So not only is it a rehash, it's an insulting rehash with special effects -- the only thing it apparently has to offer -- that you can spot a mile away. Again, unlike The Tuskegee Airmen.
You seem to be making an awful lot of assumptions based on a trailer. I'd hope and expect that Anthony Hemingway (television director of The Wire and Treme, among others) would pick a project with a little more integrity for his directorial debut.

I did like the HBO film when I saw it about ten years ago, though.
