The film, a remake of 'Nuit Blanche,' is set to be directed by Baran bo Odar.

Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan are set to star in Sleepless Nights, an action-thriller remake of French film Nuit Blanche, distributor Open Road Films said Friday. 

Baran bo Odar (The Silence) is set to direct the film from a screenplay by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton, World Trade Center).

The film will be produced by Vertigo Entertainment, with worldwide rights acquired by Open Road Films. 

Nuit Blanche, directed by Frederic Jardin, was released in 2011. In September of that year, as THR reported at the time, Warner Bros. acquired remake rights to the title after it premiered as a Toronto Midnight Madness title.

According to the released synopsis, the remake will stars Foxx as "a seemingly corrupt Las Vegas cop" and Monaghan as an internal affairs agent.
