jeff-graceJeff Grace is reuniting with director Kelly Reichardt on the upcoming thriller Night Moves. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard as three radical environmentalists who come together to blow up a hydroelectric dam – the very source and symbol of the resource-devouring industrial culture they despise. Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy) co-wrote the script with Jonathan Raymond (Mildred Pierce). Neil Kopp (Paranoid Park) & Anish Savjani are producing the independent feature with Chris Maybach & Saemi Kim (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Rodrigo Teixeira (Frances Ha). Grace has previously collaborated with the director on the 2010 western Meek’s Cutoff starring Michelle Williams. Night Moves is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere later this year.

Grace has also signed on to score the crime drama Cold Comes the Night. The film is directed by Tze Chun (Children of Invention) and stars Bryan Cranston, Alice Eve, Logan Marshall Green, Ursula Parker and Leo Fitzpatrick. The movie was previously entitled Eye of the Winter and follows a struggling a motel owner who is taken hostage with her daughter by a nearly blind career criminal to be his eyes as he attempts to retrieve his cash package from a crooked cop. Chun co-wrote the screenplay with Osgood Perkins and Nick Simon. Mynette Louie (California Solo) is producing the project for Syncopated Films and Trevor Sagan (Children of Invention) is producing for Sasquatch Films. Cold Comes the Night is also currently in post-production.
