Berlin ’15 | Foxx’s “Sleepless Night”



Oscar winner, Jamie Foxx’s next film, Sleepless Nights, has been picked up for distribution ahead of its premiere at the Berlin Film Market.

Open Road has picked up the distribution rights to the remake of the 2011 French film Sleepless Night with Foxx attached to star. The story follows an undercover police officer who scours a nightclub in search of his kidnapped son.

The pic was originally set up at Warner Bros. before being put into turnaround even though Foxx had expressed interest in starring. After hearing Foxx was circling the project, Open Road moved quickly to acquire it and plans to sell international rights next week in Berlin.

Foxx continues to keep busy having also recently announced plans to play Mike Tyson in an untitled biopic as well as a starring role in Harmony Korine’s The Trap. He was most recently seen in Sony’s Annie.
