Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ron Perlman cast in Stonewall film directed by Roland Emmerich.

The film follows a young man involved in the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City.

Already in production in Montreal, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ron Perlman have been cast in new film, Stonewall. The film is being directed by Roland Emmerich and follows a young gay man (Jeremy Irvine) who is disowned by his parents and moves to NYC. There, he meets a group of LGBT youth.

This casting breakdown describes both of their characters,

There he meets the suave Danny (Meyers) but catches the eye of the Stonewall’s repulsive manager (Perlman), who colludes with corrupt police, exploits homeless youth for financial gain and is even suspected to have had a hand in some of their “disappearances.”

The film will also take place during the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City. Why is a film about NYC filming in Montreal? Emmerich stated that,

“I like the facilities in Montreal, but mostly I like the city’s great film crews. As a filmmaker, the most important thing you learn is the [quality of the] crew you have. A lot of big movies have been shot here, so they have a lot of experience.”

Emmerich is best known for his big blockbusters like Independence Day and White House Down; however, he previously did a smaller film called, Anonymous. Watch its trailer below.
