Tribeca recently acquired Last Night and The Bang Bang Club.

“Janie Jones is especially notable as a showcase for the extraordinary talents of Alessandro and Abigail, whose on-screen musical performances are nothing short of revelatory,” said Geoffrey Gilmore, Tribeca Enterprises' chief creative officer. “David Rosenthal has brought to life an inspiring and warm-hearted story that we are proud to present to audiences through Tribeca Film along with our founding partner, American Express.”

Unified Pictures' Keith Kjarval and Eric Bassett are producers. The original score is by Eef Barzeley of the alt-country band Clem Snide.
