Taska plans ‘Tonight’

Producer inks father to helm thriller

COPENHAGEN — Estonian producer Kristian Taska, whose “Names in Marble” sank “Titanic” to break the country’s all-time box office record, has signed his father, Ilmar, to helm “We Won’t Sleep Tonight,” a psychological thriller to be shot in the capital, Tallinn.

The elder Taska, who was educated in Russia and works as a writer-producer in the U.S., is directing an Estonian and an English-language version back-to-back. The $700,000 feature, about two men and two women’s whirlwind experiences during a long summer’s night, stars Estonian top model Carmen Kass and Finnish actor Peter Franzen. Swedish-Hungarian Istvan Borbas (who shot Roy Andersson’s “Songs from the Second Floor”) is the d.p. Produced with New York’s Zodiac Capital, “We Won’t Sleep Tonight” will be readied for a February 2004 release.

Last November, Taska’s first feature, “Names in Marble,” opened better than any other film in Estonia, and has racked up close to 170,000 admissions. Best local title till then was “Those Old Love Letters,” which sold 58,000 tickets in 1992.
