And For His Next Trick, Kevin Bacon Will Terrorize Audiences in the Thriller, COP CAR

Hey, are any of you watching The Following on Monday nights on Fox? If you're not, you're missing out on one of the most ridiculously violent shows on TV (if you're into that kind of thing). The show has become a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, now in its second season. (But the addition of Michael Ealy as a lunatic killer, is worth the price of admission alone). In case you're unfamiliar, it's about a group of law enforcers, led by Kevin Bacon, who try to stop a vicious cult from running amok. At this point in the series, Bacon's character has become uncomfortably intertwined with cult leader Joe Carroll (James Purefoy).

At any rate, I bring this up to say that Bacon will play another dark role in the upcoming thriller, COP CAR. The actor stars as a county sheriff who becomes two young boys' worst nightmare after their prank goes awry. More in the synopsis:

Kevin Bacon (The Following, HBO's Taking Chance, Mystic River) stars in director Jon Watts' delightful throwback thriller Cop Car. When two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) 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.

Camryn Manheim (where the heck has she been?) also stars in COP CAR, which is slated to hit theaters in August. Check out an image from the film:

Thoughts? I'll keep you updated on the film as I learn more.
