Being Mary Jane actress Gabrielle Union is set to star in two film releases in 2016: Sleepless Night with Jamie Foxx and Keanu, which stars comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.
Sleepless Night is a remake of the French film Nuit Blanche and tells the story of a corrupt cop who must retrieve a bag of drugs in order to rescue his son whose been taken by a murderous drug lord. Gabrielle will play Foxx’s ex-wife. This will be the second time the pair have teamed up on the big screen. They first appeared together in the Sony Pictures 2004 romantic comedy Breakin’ all the Rules.
Gabrielle will play Keegan-Michael Key’s wife in “Keanu,” a comedy about two uptight lawyers who pretend to be drug dealers in order to retrieve a stolen kitten. I wish I was making that synopsis up, but I am not. Let’s hope it’s funnier than it sounds.
Gabby is presently on hiatus, as the second season of “Being Mary Jane” wrapped up last month. The show was given an early season three renewal and is expected to return to the air in January.
