Sundance: Focus World Picks Up Kevin Bacon’s ‘Cop Car’

Focus World has acquired U.S. and U.K. rights to “Cop Car,” following its Sundance premiere in the midnight section.

The film is directed by Jon Watts and stars Kevin Bacon, James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Wellford, Shea Whigham and Camryn Manheim.

“Cop Car” centers on a pair of 10-year-old boys attempting to navigate the back roads behind the wheel of a seemingly abandoned police car that they have no clue how to operate. The script is by Watts and Christopher D. Ford.

Producers are Cody Ryder, Alicia Van Couvering, Sam Bisbee, Andrew Kortschak and Watts. Focus World is planning a simultaneous theatrical and VOD release of the film.

The deal was negotiated by Beth Lemberger and Anjay Nagpal of Focus with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
