Alice Eve stars as Chloe, who finds a bag full of money in her hotel, and soon must answer to Topo (Bryan Cranston), the ruthless criminal whom the money was meant for. Take a look at the first footage from director Tze Chun's thriller, then read the press release for more official details.
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA) has acquired all domestic and international media rights to Tze Chun's Cold Comes the Night, starring Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), and Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus). The film also stars Ursula Parker (Louie) and Leo Fitzpatrick (The Wire).
Currently in post-production, Cold Comes the Night is directed by Tze Chun, and written by Tze Chun, Osgood Perkins, and Nick Simon. Chun's acclaimed debut feature, Children of Invention, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won 17 festival awards.
Chun's film tells the story of a struggling motel owner (Eve) who, along with her daughter (Parker), is taken hostage by a career criminal (Cranston) as he attempts to retrieve his cash package from a crooked cop (Marshall-Green). Everyone gets in over their heads, and a series of double-crosses leaves a string of dead bodies in this pulse-pounding story about desperation and survival.
The film is produced by Mynette Louie of Syncopated Films and Trevor Sagan of Sasquatch Films. It was financed by Three Point Capital, Whitewater Films, and Cherry Sky Films, and executive produced by Scott Halle, Rick Rosenthal, Nick Morton, Jacob Pechenik, and Ali Jazayeri. Lauren Craniotes, Vice President of Production for SPWA, is overseeing the film for SPWA.
