Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ron Perlman Join Cast of Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall'

Shooting on Stonewall, Roland Emmerich's feature film about a young man caught up in the 1969 Stonewall riots in NYC, has begun in Montreal, and the producers have added Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ron Perlman to its cast, Deadline reports:

MeyersJonny Beauchamp and Caleb Landry Jones co-star, and newbies Karl Glusman, Vlademir Alexis and Alexandre Nachi also have come aboard. The film is being produced by Michael Fossat, Marc Frydman and Emmerich, with Kirstin Winkler and Adam Press executive producing.

Jeremy Irvine is playing the lead, a homeless man who goes to NYC after being disowned by his family and befriends a group of LGBT youth.

Deadline adds:

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.” King will play Winters’ sister.

Why Montreal?

The Montreal Gazette reported, in late May:

Emmerich filmed big-budget movies like 2004’s The Day After Tomorrow and last year’s White House Down in Montreal. The German director is back in Montreal because he loves filming movies here.

“I like the facilities in Montreal, but mostly I like the city’s great film crews,” Emmerich told POP TART this week. “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.”

Stonewall is budgeted around $14 million.

Five Favorite Men of TV's Period Pieces

Tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern the CW premieres Reign, a period drama focusing on a young Mary, Queen of Scots. Since this is the CW, there will be lots of scandalous teenage sexuality. This series is also boasting a buzzy soundtrack featuring current artists like Mumford & Sons and Santigold. They're hoping the juxtaposition of cool, contemporary tracks against bodice-ripping melodrama will be enough to add a little spice to the historical soap.

Reign isn't the first television period piece and, with shows like The Gilded Age in development, it certainly won't be the last. Sure, the secret to success is in the storytelling, but, come on, a handsome leading man to get your petticoats all tied in knots certainly doesn't hurt.
