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 Wick – with 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.
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.
