Paz Vega will be spending the Night in the United States…
Saban Films has acquired the North American rights to the action thriller American Night, starring the 45-year-old Spanish actress.
The announcement comes ahead of the film’s debut at the Venice Film Festival, with plans to release it in theaters this fall.
The first feature from writer-director Alessio Della Valle is a neo-noir set in New York City’s corrupt contemporary art world, which stars Emile Hirsch, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Vega, Jeremy Piven, Michael Madsen and more.
The film follows art dealer John Kaplan (Meyers) and Michael Rubino (Hirsch), the ruthless head of New York’s mafia, as they fight for money, art, power and love.
American Night hails from Martha Productions, Pegasus Entertainment, QMI and RAI Cinema. Martha Capello and Ilaria Dello Iacono produced the film, with Giorgio Ferrero exec producing.
“We look forward to working with Director Alessio Della Valle on his feature directorial debut American Night,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley. “His experiences travelling the world have equipped him with a unique perspective and make him such a gifted filmmaker.”
