Sleepless trailer: Jamie Foxx is a cop with a kidnapped son

Posted on

Jamie Foxx transforms into a police detective in the action-packed cop drama Sleepless, which debuted a new trailer Wednesday.

The film follows Vincent Downs (Foxx), whose connection to the criminal underground causes his son to get kidnapped. In the tense trailer, the kidnappers snatch his son right out of the passenger seat of a car. Fortunately, because of Downs’ secret knowledge of the local crime kingpins, he has the information he’ll need to track down those responsible.

Baran bo Odar directed and Andrea Berloff wrote the script. The movie is based on the 2011 French film Nuit Blanche. T.I., Gabrielle Union, Dermot Mulroney, and Scoot McNairy round out the cast.

Sleepless opens Feb. 24. See the trailer above.
