Manhattan Night production notes

Manhattan Night, the thriller starring Adrien Brody, Jennifer Beals, Yvonne Strahovski and Campbell Scott, opens in selected theatres across the USA and video on demand on May 20th.
Here’s some interesting production notes about the film:

“I finished reading the book Manhattan Nocturne, I knew I had to make it into a movie,” says director, screenwriter and producer Brian DeCubellis. That was back in 1999.

Four years later DeCubellis secured the film rights of the book. DeCubellis had a vision for the movie from that initial reading. “I had made an outline for the movie while reading the book four years earlier. I just pulled that outline out and started writing it. The first draft came very quickly and was to be the main structure which got updated many times over the years.”
