COPS Movie

COPS Movie

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.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
