Wright tweeted out the new release date this morning, and told fans he’s still working on the movie: “Haunted by someone else’s past, but we’ll see you in the future… It’s true, #LastNightInSoho is not quite finished yet due to Covid 19. But, I’m excited for you all to experience it, at a big screen near you, on April 23, 2021.”
The London-set psychological thriller follows a young girl, who is passionate about fashion design, who mysteriously enters the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it seems, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences. Pic stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma), Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit), Matt Smith (The Crown), Michael Ajao, Synnøve Karlsen, Diana Rigg, Terence Stamp and Rita Tushingham.
Wright and Penny Dreadful scribe Krysty Wilson-Cairns co-wrote the screenplay, Nira Park produced with Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, and Wright. Focus Features and Film4 co-financed the film. Universal Pictures International will release internationally.
Wright’s previous directing effort, Baby Driver, became his highest-grossing title with $227 million at the global box office.
