Boys will be boys — and in this case, they might pay for it. Here’s the first look at Cop Car, starring Kevin Bacon as a sleazebag small-town sheriff who makes life miserable for a couple of kids who make off with his patrol unit. The young’uns (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) happen upon the seemingly abandoned car in the woods and can’t resist a siren-blaring joyride. But the fun soon stops short — turns out there’s a little something in the trunk that the corrupt and sleazily mustachioed Sheriff Kretzer doesn’t want discovered. The 10-year-olds take off, and the terrorizing begins.
Camryn Manheim and Shea Whigham also star in the thriller from director Jon Watts, who also co-wrote with Christopher D. Ford. Focus World cuffed U.S. and UK rights to the pic after it debuted at Sundance and will open it August 7 in theaters, followed by a VOD release a week later. Buckle up and have a look.
