Here’s the first trailer for the upcoming remake of Frederic Jardin’s 2011 French action thriller Sleepless Night. Jamie Foxx plays a dirty cop who is caught stealing cocaine from a local kingpin, only to have his son kidnapped in retribution. From that point on, he is in a race against the clock to save his son’s life as he infiltrates a nightclub owned by the drug dealer. The original Sleepless Night earned rave reviews and was described by many as an effective mash-up of Taken and Die Hard. While I’m sure some fans of the original will be less than excited about this remake, let’s hope it manages to bring something new to the table. Sleepless is directed by Baran bo Odar (Who Am I, The Silence) and hits theatres on Feb. 24th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
