Kevin Bacon Stars in COP CAR, Heading to Theaters Aug 7

Kevin Bacon (THE FOLLOWING, HBO's TAKING CHANCE, MYSTIC RIVER) stars in director Jon Watts' delightful throwback thriller COP CAR, slated to hit theaters on August 7th.

When two good-natured but rebellious young boys (Hays Wellford of INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE and James Freedson-Jackson) stumble across an abandoned COP CAR hidden in a secluded glade they decide to take it for a quick joyride. Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the county sheriff (Kevin Bacon) and leads to brutal consequences.

Also in the cast are Shea Whigham, Camryn Manheim, James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Welford.

COP CAR firmly establishes Jon Watts as a master of minimalist suspense and a directing force that will soon extend well beyond the independent landscape -- Watts has just signed on to helm the UNTITLED SPIDER-MAN REBOOT for 2017.
