Roman J. Israel, Esq - Alterations Before Release

Washington Drama 12 Minutes Shorter in Theaters

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.

Gilroy: “The first time we actually showed the film to a real audience was in Toronto, we went right from the cutting room to the Ryerson Theatre. We wanted to make that festival but realized, watching with that crowd, that Denzel so inhabits and embodies his character that we could lean much more into the plot than we had. We re-conceived the balance of the movie, in crucial sections. The day after Toronto, Denzel and I went back into the cutting room and spent weeks making changes. Not just to the pacing. We reordered scenes, we changed elements, particularly with Colin Farrell’s character.
