Even Jack Bauer came back and the Taken movie franchise is essentially 24 but in movie form.  Then one day someone thought: why should we only have white dudes do these things?  And thus was the idea for Sleepless starring Jamie Foxx borne into being.  Using our industry contacts, of which we have many, we give you the news about the sequel to Sleepless.

The Plot of Sleepless 2 (the Sleepless Movie Sequel)

 

Sleepless was based on Sleepless Nights, a French film.  The French have a weird connection to these types of things.  I base this on the fact that Taken was a Luc Besson project and I’m pretty sure he’s French.  Anyways.  Sleepless was a cool mixture of Training Day and Taken: Jamie Foxx’s character (and that rapper dude) are rogue cops.  They steal some cocaine from a bad drug dealer because they figure, “Hey, free money.  King Kong ain’t got nothing on us.”  Then the dealer finds out, kidnaps Foxx’s son, and the set about finding the kid.

 

Just as with Taken, no one will care about the plot of Sleepless 2.  What will matter is that Jamie Foxx will once again find himself involved in some shady shit and have to shoot people en route to winning the day.  This time around, it’ll be his girlfriend that is kidnapped.  It’ll be because he did the right thing though, so that’s the twist, if you will.  Foxx will kick down doors, look at people and say, “Look into these eyes, mother fucker,” and shoot people in the face.  Again, this is Black Taken.

 

Sleepless 2 (the Sleepless Movie Sequel) DIRECTOR

 

Sleepless Nights was directed by some French dude and Sleepless was directed by Baran bo Odar. Sleepless 2 will be directed by Luc Besson.  He’s my go-to with these things.  Also, since he knows Taken, he can do the same thing here.  It’ll allow him an easy few months of shooting, a good pay day, and he won’t have to think too much.

Sleepless 2 (the Sleepless Movie Sequel) BOX OFFICE

 

This is why Sleepless 2 will be made. These types of movies are MINTS for the studios. To give you an idea, here is the cost and gross for the first three Taken films:

 

  • Taken: $22m cost; $226m box office
  • Taken 2: $43m cost; $376m box office
  • Taken 3: $55m cost; $326.5m box office

 

In total, the first three Taken films cost a combined $118m to produce and have brought in just shy of ONE BILLION DOLLARS! You just don’t find profit like that every day.

 

Sleepless is the same thing, just with “urban” appeal.

They really didn’t market this film, but it was very good. I thought it was more reminiscent of Die Hard rather than taken, though.
