Netflix has finally confirmed that it will be the home of Vanessa Kirby’s upcoming noir drama movie, where she will reunite with director Benjamin Caron. 

The movie’s plot follows Willy Vlautin’s book, with Sarah Conradt writing the script. The book follows Lynette, a 30-something burdened with debt and juggling jobs, who strives to buy her family’s home in rapidly gentrifying Portland. When her mother reneges on a promise to help, Lynette embarks on a desperate two-day search for the money. This odyssey brings her face-to-face with the city’s winners and losers, escalating her desperation. A dangerous choice plunges Lynette into a downward spiral, forcing her to confront her past as she fights for her family’s future.

Netflix’s logline for its adaptation is as follows:

“Risking everything to secure a future for herself and her brother, Lynette sets out on a dangerous odyssey in Portland; confronting her own dark past over one propulsive night.”

You may recall that this movie was announced and attached to Netflix in March, but at that point, it wasn’t fully over the line. Several outlets, like The Playlist, picked up on the fact that Netflix was originally mentioned but was removed from the original Deadline article.

The movie is produced by Gary Levinsohn, Ryan Bartecki, and Jodie Caron, with Carmen Cuba serving as casting director. Live Free or Die Films, H2l Media Group, and Aluna Entertainment are the production companies behind the film.

Vanessa Kirby will play Lynette. This serves as her third major Netflix project following her recurring role on The Crown, where she played Princess Margaret plus also starred in the 2020 drama Pieces of a Woman.

Kirby just recently wrapped Ron Howard’s survival thriller Eden, and next up throughout the summer will be Fantastic Four, set to begin filming in late July and wrap in late November 2024 where she’ll be playing Sue Storm.

Netflix also revealed the following would be co-starring:

  • Jennifer Jason Leigh (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Hateful Eight)
  • Zack Gottsagen (The Peanut Butter Falcon)
  • Stephan James (If Beale Street Could Talk, 21 Bridges)
  • Julia Fox (Uncut Gems)
  • Eli Roth (Hostel, Inglourious Basterds)
  • Randall Park (Fresh Off the Boat, Always Be My Maybe)
  • Michael Kelly (House of Cards, Jack Ryan)

Various casting calls for the movie also suggest they were looking for a Hillary Clinton lookalike to play the role of a college lecturer and an Elvis impersonator. They were looking for an Old Portland Local who would be drinking at a bar and likes to flirt with the protagonist, a woman called Shirley, who works at an industrial bakery plus casting a Dive Bar Manager.


Where in production is The Night Always Comes?

The new movie’s filming is already underway, taking place between May and July 2024 (May 14th through July 2nd), fitting into Kirby’s exceptionally busy filming schedule right now. The entirety of filming will take place in Portland, Oregon which matches the location of the book.
