Which of the following actresses would be best to cast along with actor John Cusack in a period noir film: Penelope Cruz, Zhang Ziyi or Winona Ryder?
“Dark Is The Night”
Directed by Steven Spielberg (yes, I’m dreaming)
Its Los Angeles, 1939…
A curious private detective (John Cusack) trails and interrupts a personal attack of vengeance by a former silent film actress/femme-fatale with a heart (your choice of the three actresses), known publicly as the The Black Butterfly. After a few close encounters the two strangers helplessly fall in love, much to the chagrin of his manipulative former flame (Gwyneth Paltrow). While trying to survive an underestimating clash with the Butterfly’s target: a ruthless L.A. gangster (Mickey Roarke), representing the City of Angels, they both discover that a certain worldwide secret society that the gangster reports to is hiding a connection to the forming Nazi’s…and a future that will be seemingly controlled by the evil group.
Actor Ewan McGregor is a photojornanist nearly following the detective’s every move, putting himself also in further danger.
