Trailer: Joe Carnahan’s COPSHOP Starring Gerard Butler & Frank Grillo – Assault On Precinct 13 Meets John Wick

Cophsop appears to be a gutsy, gun metal action flick from bullet-driven auteur, Joe Carnahan. Starring Gerard Butler and Frank Grillo, Copshop looks like John Carpenter’s Assault On Precinct 13 crossed with John Wickwith added humour. What’s not to like about that?

Co-starring Alexis Louder, Toby Huss, Ryan O’Nan and  Kaiwi Lyman-Mersereau, the film is set to open in UK and Irish cinemas on 10 September. 

The synopsis:

Screaming through the Nevada desert in a bullet-ridden Crown Vic, wily con artist Teddy Murretto (Frank Grillo) hatches a desperate plan to hide out from lethal hitman Bob Viddick (Gerard Butler): He sucker-punches rookie officer Valerie Young (Alexis Louder) to get himself arrested and locked up in a small-town police station. But jail can’t protect Murretto for long. Viddick schemes his own way into detention, biding his time in a nearby cell until he can complete his mission. When the arrival of a competing assassin (Toby Huss) ignites all-out mayhem, mounting threats force Viddick to get creative if he wants to finish the job and escape the explosive situation.
