Emmerich brings Anonymous to Ann Arbor Sept. 29, 2011

Sony representative Stephanie Gonzales of Allied Integrated Marketing in Bloomfield Hills confirmed today that Roland Emmerich's film, Anonymous, will be screened for an audience of University of Michigan English literature and history classes at 7 p.m. September 29 at the State Theater in Ann Arbor.

Emmerich, screenwriter John Orloff, and author Charles Beauclerk will be in Ann Arbor to meet with media representatives and take part in a panel discussion after the Anonymous screening a week from today. University of Michigan associate professor Doug Trevor will also take part in the discussion.

"Sony Pictures asked if I'd serve on a panel to provide an academic perspective on the question of authorship in Shakespeare studies," Trevor said. "I thought my students might enjoy seeing the film so I agreed. . . . I look forward to seeing the film."

A contingent of 18 Oberon members will also attend, courtesy of Karie DiNardo, senior publicist at Sony Pictures Entertainment in Los Angeles.
