The first trailer for the crime thriller Cold Comes the Night has landed online, plus the feature has secured distribution.  Directed by Tze Chun (Children of Invention), the film stars Alice Eve as a struggling motel owner who is taken hostage, along with her young daughter, by a Russian criminal played by Bryan Cranston.  The trailer is worth watching if only to see Cranston putting on a Russian accent, and Eve gets the chance to lead a film of her own.  Sony Pictures Worldwide has acquired all domestic and international rights to the film, though a release date has yet to be announced.  We also don’t know if this will be getting a significant theatrical release, or if SPWA will opt for VOD.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to read the press release.  The film also stars Logan Marshall-Green, Ursula Parker, and Leo Fitzpatrick.

SONY PICTURES WORLDWIDE ACQUISITIONS ACQUIRES WORLDWIDE RIGHTS TO TZE CHUN’S COLD COMES THE NIGHT STARRING ALICE EVE, BRYAN CRANSTON, AND LOGAN MARSHALL-GREEN 

Culver City, CA (July 25, 2013) – 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 (Removal).  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.
