Tribeca rises for ‘Sleepless’

Starring Tomer Sisley, “Night” follows a Paris cop whose theft of a large haul of cocaine leads to a long, dangerous night for himself and his son. Jardin penned the script with Nicolas Saada and Olivier Douyere.

Marco Cherqui and Lauranne Bourrachot produced. Tribeca Film’s Nick Savva inked the distrbution deal with Gilles Sousa and Mathieu Robinet of Bac Films, which handles the pic’s international rights. Film will also see release in territories including the U.K., Germany, Canada, Russia and Benelux.

“Sleepless Night” joins a Tribeca Film slate that also includes upcoming offerings “Death of a Superhero” and “Detachment.”

Warner Bros. took remake rights to the film in September.
