Cop Car, the thriller film starring Kevin Bacon and directed by Colorado Springs native, Jon Watts, will be released on Friday, August 14th.
Watts has always had a dream of shooting in his hometown. This became a reality in the summer of 2014 while filming in nearby Fountain, CO and on local studio green screens. The original screenplay was written by Watts and Christopher Ford. Notable cast members in addition to Bacon include James Freedson-Jackson, Camryn Manheim, Shea Whigham and Hays Wellford.
In the Focus World Presents, an End Cue Production and A Dark Arts/Park Pictures Production, a pair of ten-year-old boys find an abandoned cop car in a field. When they take it for a joyride, it seems like they could kill themselves at any moment. But things only get worse when the small-town sheriff goes looking for his missing car. The kids find themselves in the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse they don't understand, and the only way out is to go as fast as their cop car can take them.
A limited number of tickets to the reception and screening are available to the public for $25 each. For more information, or to purchase, click here.
