Described as a love letter to cinema, This is the Night is written and directed by James DeMonaco, who is the filmmaker behind Blumhouse’s The Purge franchise. The coming-of-age film will reunite DeMonaco with frequent collaborator Frank Grillo, who is starring alongside  Naomi Watts, and Bobby Cannavale. It will also be led by up-and-coming actors including Lucius Hoyos, Jonah Hauer-King, River Alexander, Chase Vacnin, and Madelyn Cline.

“The film is set in 1982, as all of Staten Island anticipates the opening of the blockbuster film, Rocky III,” reads the synopsis. “An Italian American family must confront their greatest challenges just like their onscreen hero does. In the end they realize that there is only one way to live: Like there’s no tomorrow.”
