Jamie Foxx Brings The Heat In The First Trailer For Action Crime Remake, SLEEPLESS
So how does one go about remaking a French crime pic? Well, you can talk to either Rajesh M. Selva of Thoongaavanam fame, or pan over to helmer Baran Bo Odar whose latest American iteration, Sleepless, has a trailer now running ahead of its February 24, 2017 release from Open Road Films.
Front and center is actor Jamie Foxx with a career having turned much more prolific over the years in film over music. It does him justice though, and with a script by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton) which sees Foxx in the role of a corrupt Las Vegas cop caught in the crosshairs of an Internal Affairs investiagtion, and gangsters holding his son for ransom when the shipment of cocaine he stole gets lost.
Also starring are actresses Gabrielle Union and Michelle Monaghan, and actors Dermot Mulroney, Tip "T.I." Harris and Scoot McNairy. Watch the new trailer below courtesy of AMC Theaters.
