Battle in Seattle stuff

Considering the high-profile cast, I'm a little ashamed for not being more aware of BATTLE IN SEATTLE, which will open the 34th Seattle International Film Festival on May 22.

The movie stars Charlize Theron, Ray Liotta, "It Boy" Channing Tatum, Michelle Rodriguez, Andre "3000" Benjamin, Woody Harrelson and Martin Henderson (star of TORQUE!), and was written and directed by Stuart Townsend, perhaps better known for being Theron's S.O. and getting replaced by Viggo in LOTR than for his acting in movies like QUEEN OF THE DAMNED and LXG.

The synopsis: "Based on one of the most incendiary political uprisings in a generation, Battle in Seattle takes an in-depth look at the five days that rocked the world in 1999 as tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in protest of the World Trade Organization. What began as a peaceful protest intended to stop the WTO talks quickly escalated into a full-scale riot and eventual State of Emergency that squared off peaceful and unarmed protesters against the Seattle Police Department and the National Guard."

Extra Tidbit: Townsend also played the new Kolchak on the short-lived NIGHT STALKER series.
