“You touch my son, I’ll kill you,” Foxx, who plays a tough-as-nails undercover cop in Las Vegas, declares.
“Sleepless,” a remake of the French thriller “Nuit Blanche,” follows Foxx’s character as he tackles multiple worst-case scenarios over the course of a single night — a web of corrupt police officers, a powerful drug lord, and the mob-controlled casino underground all while tracking down his son while evading an internal affairs investigation led by a no-nonsense Michelle Monaghan.
“A big bad policewoman. I like that,” he tells her.
Gabrielle Union, rapper T.I., Dermot Mulroney, Scoot McNairy, and David Harbour also star. Baran Bo Odar directs from a screenplay by Andrea Berloff. Producers include Alex Foster, Roy Lee, and Adam C. Stone.
“Sleepless” opens in theaters on Feb. 24.
