Roman J. Israel, Esq - Alterations Before Release
In November 2017, the lawyer drama Roman J. Israel, Esq starring Denzel Washington will start in US theaters. But compared to the recent screening at the Toronto Film Festival, the US Theatrical Version will be 12 minutes shorter. Lead actor Washington director Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler) explained that this version was a bit more mainstream - whatever that means.
Roman J. Israel (Washington) is an idealistic old-school attorney who can't keep acting in the shadows anymore because his partner has a heart attack. Being in the spotlight, he now realizes that not everything in his company was handled as moral as it could have been.
Basically, the festival reviews are positive but it looks like some people believe there was still room for improvement. In addition to 12 missing minutes and recuts, there will be a new soundtrack as well. Specifically mentioned was a particular scene with Colin Farrell which is pretty late in the Festival Version. In the edited Theatrical Version however, one gets to see it much earlier because Farrell's character is Roman's moral counterpart and he becomes it much earlier now.
