You know the show, you know the bad boys theme music, and recently news has emerged that COPS is making the jump from TV to feature film.
The long running show is traditionally a documentary/reality series that follows law enforcement officers during their regular patrols and targeted stings to capture real events on camera as they unfold in the moment.
It is being reported that a COPS movie will take that idea, and turn it into an edgy narrative heavy feature with a buddy comedy element.
The idea seems a little confused, and somewhat similar to David Ayer’s End of Watch from 2012. It’ll be interesting to see if the COPS branding is enough of a draw card to have an impact at the box office, those going in expecting to see a big feature version of the reality show might leave disappointed though.
Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is currently attached to the project, there have been no casting announcements at this stage.
