COP CAR - Kevin Bacon Movie Takes Police Car For Joyride

vor 4 Jahren

COP CAR had its 2015 Sundance Film Festival premiere, and we sat with director Jon Watts to see a clip from the movie, and hear his explanation of the Kevin Bacon vehicle. Telling the story of two kids that go on a joyride in a police car, the charming and unorthodox collision between childhood and authority is explored, and we learn about the process of producing the movie--from shooting in Colorado to casting Kevin Bacon--through its completion. Jon’s first movie, CLOWN, and his past in film school is all shared with host Sebastian Twardosz on the Insiders.

A pair of 10-year-old boys take a cop car on a joyride and are chased by the corrupt local sheriff who will stop at nothing to get it back. Starring Kevin Bacon and Shea Whigham, this film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

Jon Watts was born and raised in Fountain, Colorado and studied film at NYU. Cop Car is his second film after Clown which stars Eli Roth, Peter Stormare, and Laura Allen.
