Rachel Weisz’ Holocaust Denier Drama ‘Denial’ Set for September

Bleecker Street has set an awards-season release date of Sept. 30 for “Denial,” the courtroom drama starring Rachel Weisz and Timothy Spall.

Bleecker Street acquired North American rights at the American Film Market in November. “Denial” is based on the Deborah E. Lipstadt book “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier.”

Mick Jackson directed. David Hare adapted the script, which recounts Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier.

Weisz stars as Lipstadt and Spall as Irving. Tom Wilkinson also stars.

Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff of Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment alongside Shoebox Films. Participant Media developed the project with BBC Films, and is co-financing as well. Exec producers are Participant Media’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, BBC Films’ Christine Langan and Joe Oppenheimer, Bleecker Street’s Andrew Karpen, and Shoebox Films Guy Heeley.

Bleecker Street recently released the hit “Eye in the Sky,” starring Helen Mirren. It’s also released “Trumbo,” “I’ll See You in My Dreams” and “Danny Collins.”
