*Open Road has picked up the distribution rights to the remake of the 2011 French film “Sleepless Night” and will produce with Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan attached to star, reports Variety.
The pic, with Baran Bo Odar directing, follows an undercover police officer who scours a nightclub in search of his kidnapped son.
The project 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 hurried up and nabbed it. The studio plans to sell international rights next week at the Berlin Film Market.
Foxx continues to keep busy, having also recently announced plans to play Mike Tyson in an untitled biopic; he also has a starring role in Harmony Korine’s “The Trap.” The actor was most recently seen in Sony’s “Annie.”
Monaghan is coming off the first season of “True Detective,” which earned her a Golden Globe nomination, and can be seen next in “Pixels.”
