Casting News: Gabrielle Union Joins Jamie Foxx for Sleepless Night

The Being Mary Jane star will also appear in Key and Peele's Keanu.

Published May 26, 2015

No down time for Mary Jane Paul! Gabrielle Union is keeping busy this summer while on hiatus from Being Mary Jane and has signed on to star in two exciting new projects.

First up, the actress will play Jamie Foxx’s ex-wife in action thriller Sleepless Night. A remake of French thriller Nuit Blanche, the film centers on a dirty cop (Foxx) who must reclaim a bag of stolen drugs to save his kidnapped son’s life while he’s pursued by both sides of the law. The film shoots in Atlanta and Las Vegas.

Right after that, Union will hop on to Keanu, a comedy starring Key & Peele duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele about two friends who decide to act like gangster drug-dealers in order to retrieve a stolen kitten. Union will play Key's wife in the film, which shoots in New Orleans.

Hopefully the hard-working star will have a chance to take a vacation with her man Dwyane Wade during their respective off seasons!
