Production Wraps on Roth's "Freedomland"

by | June 23, 2005 | Comments

Revolution Studios issued a press release that was kind enough to publicize, and here’s the scoop: The Joe Roth mystery thriller "Freedlomland," which is based on the novel by screenwriter/author Richard Price ("Sea of Love," "The Color of Money," "Clockers," and several others), has finished production and inched one step closer to your multiplex lobby.

Described as "a highly-charged and gritty mystery of a car hijacking, a missing child and a neighborhood torn asunder," the film stars Samuel L. Jackson ("Coach Carter"), Julianne Moore ("The Forgotten"), Edie Falco ("Sunshine State"), Ron Eldard ("Ghost Ship"), and Aunjanue Ellis ("Ray").

You may remember director Joe Roth from movies such as "Christmas with the Kranks," "America’s Sweethearts," and "Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise" — but we won’t hold that against him; "Freedomland" still sounds pretty solid. But we won’t get to find out until next January!
