Warners Remaking “Sleepless Night”

Warner Bros. Pictures is seeking to team scribes Dante Harper (“All You Need Is Kill”) and Andrea Berloff (“World Trade Center”) to co-write an English language remake of the French action film “Sleepless Night” says Deadline.

The Frederic Jardin-directed original focuses on an undercover cop who must trade a duffel bag full of cocaine for his son who has been kidnapped by a drug dealer.

He must evade rival dealers, corrupt cops and internal affairs in a race all over the city to keep his kid alive. Roy Lee will produce the remake.
