UPDATED: Roadside Attractions released the movie’s trailer today! Watch here:
Details have been trickling out for the upcoming drama about the 1969 Stonewall Riot. Not quite with the ferocity of 200 angry gays on Christopher Street, perhaps, but they’re coming all the same.
We’re curious to see what the filmmakers will do with this: director Roland Emmerich made his name with blow-’em-up blockbusters like Independence Day and one of the Godzilla remakes while screenwriter Jon Robin Baitz is known for creating thinky, dialog-driven TV (Brothers & Sisters) and plays (Other Desert Cities).
Stonewall tells the true events of June 28, 1969 using the device of a fictional character played by Jeremy Irvine. Alone, homeless and destitue in Greenwich Village after having been kicked out of his parents’ home, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn.
The film is in theaters September 25 of this year.
