Co-starring Yvonne Strahovski, Campbell Scott, Jennifer Beals, Linda Lavin and Steven Berkoff, “Manhattan Night” centers on the aforementioned reporter whose latest story may be too much for him to handle. Here’s the synopsis: 

Based on Colin Harrison’s acclaimed New York Times Notable Book of the Year Manhattan Nocturne, the film MANHATTAN NIGHT is a seductive thriller that tells the story of Porter Wren (Adrien Brody), a New York City tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. In this modern version of a classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail – one that threatens his job, his marriage and his life.

Directed by Brian DeCubellis, “Manhattan Night” opens in theaters and On Demand on May 20th.
