American Night Trailer: Jonathan Rhys Meyers Stars In Art Thriller [EXCLUSIVE]

Screen Rant has the exclusive trailer for American Night, the upcoming neo-noir thriller starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Vikings). The film is directed and written by Alessio Jim Della Valle, making his feature debut. American Night is being screened at the Venice Film Festival in September and will be released in select theaters and On Demand on October 1.

American Night follows John Kaplan (Meyers), a crooked art dealer looking to turn legitimate and open his own gallery. He and his friend cross paths with the mob, led by new Don Michael Rubino (Emile Hirsch, Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans) when Andy Warhol's highly sought after Pink Marilyn Monore painting is stolen. The race for the painting leads to a chain reaction of dangerous events, double-crosses, and surprising twists and turns.

Watch the exclusive trailer for American Night below. It shows off the film's quirky cast of characters and intense action set against the backdrop of the corrupt New York City contemporary art world. It appears everyone is willing to go to great lengths to obtain the iconic painting - and the fame, fortune, and power that comes with it.

American Night also stars Jeremy Piven (Entourage) as John's friend Vincent; Paz Vega (Rambo: Last Blood) as Sarah, a museum curator hopelessly in love with the art dealer; and Michael Madsen (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) as Lord Samuel Morgan. International popstar Anastacia wrote and also performs the main musical theme for the film. Besides Warhol, American Night also features art from Mario Schifano, Jeff Koons, Annamaria Barbaro, Gotti Bernhoft, Tullio Crali, Davide Dall’Osso, Emanuele Giannelli, Anthony Moman, Kouhei Nakama, Andrea Roggi, and Simon Thompson.

The official synopsis for America Night reads:

Art and life collide in this stylish and wildly entertaining neo-noir thriller. When a highly coveted Andy Warhol painting suddenly surfaces, it triggers a chain reaction of danger-filled events for a colorful group of characters including: a forger turned art dealer (Jonathan Rhys Meyers); a mobster and painter (Emile Hirsch) with a penchant for scorpions; a seductive museum conservator (Paz Vega); and a stuntman and wannabe ninja (Jeremy Piven). Filled with daring double-crosses and surprising twists and turns, the race for the painting comes to an explosive conclusion…one American Night.
