American World Pictures has acquired the worldwide rights to both "One Long Night" and "Triloquist," and will screen both for buyers around the world in the Cannes Market. "Night" is a Latin-themed comedy thriller starring Alison Eastwood, Karen Black, Ed Begley Jr. and Jon Seda. Directed by David Alfaro Siquerios (who recently won the Houston Film Festival's Best Director award for the film), the film "appeals to a worldwide audience," says American World Pictures President Mark Lester. Lester's other acquisition, "Triloquist," is written and directed by Mark Jones ("Leprechaun.") It follows two teenagers on the run from their murderous dummy. Based in Los Angeles, American World Pictures is a distribution company that focuses on feature films in the domestic and international marketplace. [Peter Knegt]
