U.K. sales, finance and postproduction banner Goldcrest Films has taken international sales rights on Roland Emmerich‘s gay-rights drama Stonewall and will start offering it to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin. The company confirmed the deal, earlier reported by Screen, on Monday.
The film, which is a departure for the director of such blockbusters as Independence Day, stars Jeremy Irvine, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ron Perlman. The movie tells the story of the riots of June 1969 after police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village.
Emmerich’s film focuses on one man’s political awakening sparked by the riots, which became a galvanizing event for the gay rights movement in the U.S. Newcomer Jonny Beauchamp and Caleb Landry Jones also star.
Jon Robin Baitz (Brothers & Sisters) wrote the script for Stonewall. Emmerich, Michael Fossat and Marc Frydman are producing, with Kirstin Winkler and Adam Press executive producing.
The film is currently in postproduction.
