“The Night Always Comes” Confirms Oregon Production

“Napoleon” star Vanessa Kirby will reunite with The Crown’s Benjamin Caron on a movie based on Portland author Willy Vlautin’s 2021 novel “The Night Always Comes,” about a working-class woman in the Pacific Northwest who embarks on a 24-hour quest to call in old debts and raise enough money to keep a roof over her head.

“The Night Always Comes” film is based on a screenplay by Seattle-based screenwriter Sarah Conradt, whose credits include “Mothers’ Instinct” and “50 States of Fright.” Vlautin’s 2010 book “Lean on Pete” was adapted and directed by Andrew Haigh (All of Us Strangers) in 2017 and was also produced in Oregon. His debut tome, The Motel Life, was filmed in 2012.

This new Vlautin screen project is set to shoot on locations in Portland, OR in May ahead of Kirby filming her role as Sue Storm, aka Invisible Woman, in The Fantastic Four reboot to be directed by Matt Shakman later this summer.

Kirby and Caron have waited a long time to work together again since their success on The Crown.
