The Cops Are Robbers In The Extended Trailer For Frederic Jardin's SLEEPLESS NIGHT

, Founder and Editor

The star of glossy action franchise Largo Winch, the producer of stunning prison drama A Prophet and Clint Eastwood's cinematographer team up for Sleepless Night, a gritty French action flick that has had crowds at the Toronto International Film Festival buzzing in anticipation for days.

A gunshot shatters the early-morning silence on the streets of Paris as two men in balaclavas intercept a car on a drug run. In the rushed heist that follows, one of the drug carriers in the vehicle is shot. The other escapes, but not before getting a glimpse of one of the men unmasked.

The next day, one of the thieves, Vincent (Tomer Sisley of Largo Winch), is addressed as lieutenant in the bathroom at work. This reveal -- that the robbers are really cops -- is the first of many in Frédéric Jardin's Sleepless Night, which peels back layers of deceit one by one as the film plunges forward.

This is an all-nighter of action: pop some caffeine and run headfirst into Jardin's gritty world of good cops, bad cops and vicious drug dealers, all flashing under strobe lights and set to a throbbing techno beat.
An extended trailer for the film has just turned up online and it looks as if the early buzz is well justified. Take a look below.
