Tribeca Film will release the award-winning thriller No Rest for the Wicked (No habra paz para los malvados), directed by Spanish thriller/film noir director Enrique Urbiz, which is currently screening as part of Fantastic Fest in Austin. Tribeca Film plans a December release for the film.
Santos Trinidad (José Coronado) is a dirty cop with a violent streak and a serious thirst for rum and Coke. During a drunken binge, he murders three people in a bar. A witness escapes from the building before Santos can catch him. While Santos sets out to kill the witness and cover up his crimes, a judge and the police conduct an investigation into the murders. Santos’ hunt for the witness and the parallel police investigation slowly converge to reveal a massive criminal conspiracy that no one involved could have ever anticipated.
The film swept the 2012 Goya Awards —the Spanish equivalent of the Oscars— with wins for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Screenplay, Best Editing, and Best Sound. No Rest for the Wicked was scripted by Urbizu and Michel Gatzambide and produced by Gonzalo Salazar-Simpson and Alvaro Augustin as well as Lazona and Telecinco Cinema.
