The Story of Dalton Trumbo Comes to the Big Screen

Bleacher Street, along with ShivHans Pictures and Groundswell Productions, is bringing the story of Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo to theaters this November in TRUMBO.

"The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. TRUMBO (directed by Jay Roach) tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger."

Dalton Trumbo wrote over sixty films including Spartacus, Papillon, Thirsty Seconds Over Tokyo, Johnny Got His Gun, A Guy Named Joe, Five Came Back, Roman Holiday, and Exodus.

TRUMBO was based on the book by Bruce Cook, with a screenplay by John McNamara, directed by Jay Roach, and stars Bryan Cranston, Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, Louis C.K., and Adawale Akinnouye Agbage.

TRUMBO will be released in theaters on November 6, 2015.
