In 2014, actor Jamie Foxx appeared in five separate films: “Rio 2,” “”The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” “Horrible Bosses 2,” and “Annie.” Fox has not appeared in a film since but has instead released his fifth R&B album “Hollywood: A Story of Dozen Roses,” and provided the voice of Jackie Robinson in the Ken Burns’ documentary on the baseball legend released earlier this year. But soon, Foxx will return to the big screen in “Sleepless,” an action thriller about a police detective forced to recover his son after he’s been violently kidnapped.

When a heist goes dangerously wrong, a drug lord kidnaps his son (Octavius J. Johnson), Downs is forced to save him, evade an internal affairs investigation led by a no-nonsense cop (Michelle Monaghan), and bring the gangsters to justice, all in one sleepless night.
