World Premiere at TIFF of Academy Award® nominee Dan Gilroy’s Roman J. Israel, Esq

img

The Toronto International Film Festival® proudly announces the World Premiere of Academy Award® nominee Dan Gilroy’s Roman J. Israel, Esq., completing the 2017 Official Programme Selection. Written and directed by Gilroy and featuring an amazing transformation by Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel, Esq. is the newest and final addition to TIFF’s Special Presentations programme, furthering Washington and Gilroy’s collaborative relationship with the Festival.
 
“The Toronto International Film Festival has a wonderful history with both Dan Gilroy and Denzel Washington,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of TIFF. “Three years ago TIFF had the honour of premiering Gilroy’s directorial debut, Nightcrawler, at the Festival. In addition to previously screening The Equalizer and presenting the World Premiere of Training Day, which earned Washington an Oscar for Best Actor, the Washington-starring The Magnificent Seven was our Opening Night film last year. A project that teams up both of these remarkable creators is one not to be missed.”
 
“We always hoped to premiere at Toronto and couldn't be happier that TIFF audiences will be the first to see the film,” said Gilroy.  “Thanks to Cameron and the entire Festival crew for embracing us and bringing Roman Israel to the world.”
 
The project also reteams Denzel Washington with lead financiers MACRO and Bron Studios, who co-financed the actor's last film, the Oscar-nominated Fences.
 
Roman J. Israel, Esq. is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when a turbulent series of events challenge the activism that has defined his career. Colin Farrell costars as the ambitious, monied lawyer who recruits Roman to his firm.
 
This star-led cast features Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo, Lynda Gravatt, Amanda Warren, Hugo Armstrong, Sam Gilroy, Tony Plana, DeRon Horton and Amari Cheatom. Roman J. Israel, Esq. is produced by Jennifer Fox, Todd Black, and Denzel Washington.  The executive producers are Brian Oliver, Betsy Danbury, Charles D. King, Kim Roth, Poppy Hanks, Michael Bloom, Adam Pincus, Aaron L. Gilbert, Alex Lebovici, Steve Ponce, Derek Dauchy, and Ben Ross. The film is a Columbia Pictures presentation in association with MACRO / Topic / Cross Creek Pictures / Bron Studios / The Culture China – Image Nation Abu Dhabi Content Fund.
 
The 42nd Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 7 to 17, 2017.
