Magnet Releasing debuted first poster and trailer for a comic-to-film adaptation Officer Downe, the directorial debut of Michael Shawn Crahan (a.k.a. “Clown”) of the band Slipknot.
Starring Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy) as the titular zombie police officer who returns to the streets of Los Angeles time and time again to fight crime, the film is based on Joe Casey and Chris Burnham’s graphic novel of the same name.
The cast also includes Tyler Ross, Lauren Luna Velez, Meadow Williams, Alison Lohman, Sona Eyambe, and filmmaker Mark Neveldine who also produced it.
Officer Downe opens in select theaters and VOD on November 18th. Check out the first official trailer and poster below.
So bad it’s good perhaps?
Adapted from the 2010 graphic novel, Officer Downe takes you into a hyper-real Los Angeles for the story of a savage LA policeman who is repeatedly resurrected and returned to active duty via dark science technology. When a rookie officer named Gable is recruited as backup, he discovers there’s much more to the titular super-cop than a mindless law enforcement drone warring against a twisted rouges gallery of over-the-top super-villains.
