Bryan Cranston’s ‘Trumbo’ Set for Nov. 6 Release

Recently launched distributor Bleecker Street has set Bryan Cranston’s “Trumbo” for an awards-season release on Nov. 6 in the U.S.

The film is based on the true story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Cranston), who had been one of Hollywood’s top screenwriters before he was forced to testify in front of the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1947. When he refused to cooperate, he was sent to prison for 11 months.

Helen Mirren co-stars as Trumbo’s nemesis, columnist Hedda Hopper. Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, John Goodman, Michael Stuhlbarg and Louis C.K. co-star in the pic, directed by Jay Roach.

Michael London’s Groundswell Prods. produces in association with Shivani Rawat, Monica Levinson, and Nimitt Mankad through ShivHans Pictures. Bleecker Street, headed by Andrew Karpen, launched last summer and took on distribution of the ShivHans titles.

Upon his release, Trumbo became a prolific blacklisted writer and won an Oscar for “The Brave One” under the name Robert Rich. In 1993, he was posthumously awarded the Oscar for writing “Roman Holiday.”
