Last time I looked, impersonating a police officer was a crime, but it’s also got a fair amount of potential for comedy.
That’s the premise behind Let’s Be Cops, starring Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson, which has just released its first red band trailer.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘It’s the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they’re not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.’
James D’Arcy, Andy Garcia, Rob Riggle and Nina Dobrev also star.
It’ll be in cinemas this summer.
