Filmmaker Joe Carnahan (The Grey) has enlisted Gerard Butler (Angel Has Fallen) and Frank Grillo (Avengers: Endgame) to star in his new action thriller Copshop.
As per Variety, Copshop will take place in “a small-town police station that becomes the unlikely battleground between Butler’s professional hitman, a smart rookie female cop and a double-crossing con man played by Grillo, who seeks refuge behind bars with no place left to run.”
“I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Joe Carnahan for the fifth time, and Frank Grillo has been a good luck charm for Open Road since its inception, having been featured in Joe’s film The Grey, End of Watch and Homefront,” said executive producer Tom Ortenberg of Open Road Films. “Putting Joe and Frank together with one of the biggest action stars in the world in Gerard Butler in Joe’s exciting script for Copshop is a recipe for a big theatrical hit.”
Filming on Copshop is set to get underway in October, with Carnahan and Grillo producing through their WarParty banner alongside Butler’s G-BASE Productions.
