Open Road has released a first poster and trailer for their new action thriller “Sleepless” starring Jamie Foxx, which is set to open in the spring of 2017.

In the film Foxx plays 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 kidnap 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.

“Sleepless” is an English-language remake of “Sleepness Night,” the 2011 French thriller starring Tomer Sisley and directed by Frederic Jaradin.

The film also stars Michelle Monaghan, Dermot Mulroney, Gabrielle Union, and Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris.

“Sleepless” was directed by Swiss directer Baran Bo Odar from a script written by Andrea Berloff.

Producers are Roy Lee, Adam Stone.

John Powers Middleton, Alex Foster, Tom Ortenberg, Peter Lawson, Lauranne Bourrachot, Marco Cherqui, and Jeremiah Samuel are executive producers.
