Jamie Foxx signs on for exciting new film role


Fresh on the heels of a successful remake of the family friendly Annie, actor Jamie Foxx has another remake in his sights, but this one may not be for the whole family.

According to numerous reports, Foxx has signed on to star in a remake of the French thriller Sleepless Night.

The movie tells the story of a Las Vegas cop named Vincent Downs whose son is kidnapped in retaliation for Downs having intercepted a shipment of cocaine intended for the mob. Downs then takes it upon himself to get his son back by any means, including using tactics that aren’t necessarily by the book

Foxx’s co-star in the film will be actress Michelle Monaghan, who most recently started in the romantic drama, The Best of Me.

No release has been given thus far for Sleepless Night.
