Jeremy Irvine Lands The Lead In Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall'
Stonewall, director Roland Emmerich's feature film detailing the Stonewall riots has found its leading man!
War Horse star Jeremy Irvine has been set to star in Stonewall, the next film that Roland Emmerich will direct. Scripted by Jon Robin Baitz, the film is about the June 28, 1969 police raid at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a mafia-owned bar that was a gathering place for gays and transgenders. It became the flashpoint for the gay rights movement, a galvanizing event that is considered a touchstone even today in the fight for equal rights for the gay and transgender population. Emmerich’s way in is to focus on a young man’s political awakening in the backdrop of those riots.
We're certainly looking forward to Jeremy's appearance.
