As the mustache makes clear, Kevin Bacon is in creepy predator mode for writer-director Jon Watts’ “Cop Car.” The road thriller premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and co-stars James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Wellford, Camryn Manheim and Shea Whigham. 

The official synopsis reads: “When two rebellious young boys stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade, they decide to take it for a joyride. When the small town sheriff (Kevin Bacon) goes looking for his missing car, the boys find themselves in the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse, and the only way out is to go as fast as their cop car can take them.”

Focus World will release “Cop Car” in select theaters on August 7. The film will be available On Demand and on Digital HD beginning August 14.
