Get ready for the new daily show

The Officer Downe movie is coming…

February 22nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


Looks like Joe Casey and Chris Burnham’s ultra-violent comic book one shot Officer Downe is set for the big screen and may have cast its lead already…

According to Deadline, Sons of Anarchy’s Kim Coates (below) will play the Officer himself.

Crank producers Mark Neveldine and Skip Williamson are working on the script along with creator Joe Casey.

The Image Comics’ book tells the story of Officer Downe who is pretty much invincible and on a mission to stop the gangsters that rule the city he polices.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
