Tribeca, Miramax partner to release ‘Last Night’

Ensemble romance to hit U.S. screens this spring

Miramax has found a home for drama “Last Night,” partnering with Tribeca Film to release the picture domestically in the spring.

Drama stars Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington and Eva Mendes.

Tribeca picked up theatrical, VOD and certain digital rights, targeting initial theatrical releases in New York and Los Angeles. Miramax holds onto rights for home video, TV sales and long-term digital.

“It will clearly be a very aggressive VOD schedule,” said Miramax CEO Mike Lang.

Writer-helmer Massy Tadjedin’s film centers on a husband and wife who are each separately tempted to stray from their marriage on the same night. Guillaume Canet and Griffin Dunne co-star in the film, which is produced by Nick Wechsler.

Tribeca Film, the distribution arm of Tribeca Enterprises, launched last year with plans to expand operations going forward. Org has released 10 films, half of which preemed at the Tribeca Fest.

“Last Night,” which preemed at the Toronto Film Festival, was one of a trio of unreleased Miramax pics, including “Are You Afraid of the Dark” and “The Debt,” that remained with the company in the wake of a structural changeover last year. Lang said Miramax is angling for a summer or fall release for “The Debt.”

Deal was negotiated with Miramax by Nick Savva, Tribeca Films director of acquisitions, and Adam Sloan of Tribeca Enterprises.
