Roland Emmerich’s ‘Stonewall’ Bought for U.S. by Roadside

Roadside Attractions has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Centropolis Entertainment’s “Stonewall” and plans a fall release.

Roland Emmerich directed from Jon Robin Baitz’s script, set amid the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York. Jeremy Irvine, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Jonny Beauchamp star. Goldcrest Films is handling the international rights.

The story is set at a local watering hole, the Stonewall Inn, where a rage begins to build among gays, lesbians and drag queens over discrimination and repeated police harassment.

Producers are Emmerich, Michael Fossat, Marc Frydman and Carsten Lorenz; and executive producers are Kirstin Winkler, Adam Press and Michael Roban. The film also stars Joey King, Karl Glusman, Vladimir Alexis and Alexandre Nachi.

The film was shot in and around Montreal, including the re-creation of Greenwich Village circa 1969 in a former train repair facility.
