Swiss filmmaker Baran Bo Odar makes his American directorial debut with a high octane explosive thriller Sleepless, starring Jamie Foxx in the lead role of a cop having nexus with the bad guys. The film also stars Golden Globe nominee Michelle Monaghan (Source Code, True Detective). Have a look at the first trailer below:
Sleepless stars Foxx as undercover Las Vegas police officer Vincent Downs, who is caught in a high stakes web of corrupt cops and the mob-controlled casino underground. When a heist goes wrong, a crew of homicidal gangsters kidnaps Downs’ teenage son. In one sleepless night he will have to rescue his son, evade an internal affairs investigation and bring the kidnappers to justice.
Going down with Jamie Foxx could be his partner T.I. (who may be a real corrupt cop) while Gabrielle Union just wants Downs to get their son back. The high octane thriller is an official remake of the acclaimed French thriller Nuit Blanche.
Sleepless releases February 24, 2017. Like the trailer?
