Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Hellboy star Ron Perlman have joined the cast of the upcoming Stonewall film, which has commenced production in Montreal, Canada.

Roland Emmerich's new movie focuses on the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York, which served as the catalyst for the modern gay rights movement, and will also feature War Horse star Jeremy Irvine, White House Down actor Joey King and Caleb Landry Jones.

The 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots will be remembered at the New York LGBT Pride event in New York at the end of June (14).
