Tribeca Locks Distribution For “Last Night”

Tribeca Film has scored the theatrical, VOD and select digital rights to Massy Tadjedin’s “Last Night” starring Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington reports Variety.

The pair play a married couple, apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague (Eva Mendes) to whom he’s attracted. While he’s resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love (Guillaume Canet).

The film was shot in late 2008 but became a victim of the Miramax ownership changeover which left it and several other films like “The Debt” and “The Tempest” sitting on a shelf for well over a year. ‘Night’ finally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year.

A limited Spring theatrical release in major markets is planned, while Miramax retains home video, TV sales and long-term digital rights.
