Copshop trailer: Gerard Butler hunts down Frank Grillo

Last Updated on August 10, 2021

When you throw together Gerard Butler, Frank Grillo, and Joe Carnahan, you can be sure that you're in for a good time. Open Road Films have released the first trailer for Copshop, an action thriller that stars Frank Grillo as Teddy Murretto, a con artist on the run from a lethal assassin played by Gerard Butler. In a desperate attempt to hide out, Teddy gets himself arrested and locked up in a small-town police station, but unfortunately for him, Butler's assassin has a similar trick up his sleeves. Copshop also stars Alexis Louder as a rookie cop who finds herself in the crosshairs, as well as the great Toby Huss – who damn near steals the trailer – as a competing assassin out to kill Teddy as well.

The official synopsis for Copshop:

Screaming through the Nevada desert in a bullet-ridden Crown Vic, wily con artist Teddy Murretto (Frank Grillo) hatches a desperate plan to hide out from lethal hitman Bob Viddick (Gerard Butler): He sucker-punches rookie officer Valerie Young (Alexis Louder) to get himself arrested and locked up in a small-town police station. But jail can’t protect Murretto for long. Viddick schemes his own way into detention, biding his time in a nearby cell until he can complete his mission. When the arrival of a competing assassin (Toby Huss) ignites all-out mayhem, mounting threats force Viddick to get creative if he wants to finish the job and escape the explosive situation.

Copshop is slated for a September 17, 2021 release.
