The Wright brothers wer a lot more fly than you'd think.
Fun trivia: The actors who play the Wright Brothers are actually, in fact, the Wright Brothers: they are twins named Brandon and Brian Wright. More bizarrely, it is rumored that they also wear old-timey suits, business as usual, around Los Angeles.
"Wright Brothers" was shot on a unique handcrank camera to give it a period look. The camera is one of only two in the world of its kind, which was rigged by Ridley Scott.
The majority of the costumes, styling, and set design are historically accurate – except, of course, the sneakers.
