Officer Downe” stars Canadian actor Kim Coates — who is best known for playing Tig Trager on the FX series “Sons Of Anarchy” — as an L.A. supercop who is killed in the line of duty but who is repeatedly resurrected and sent back onto the streets.

Officer Downe” is based on the “Man Of Action” imprint/Image Comics graphic novel written by Joe Casey — who also penned the film’s screenplay — and illustrated by Chris Burnham.

The film, which also features Tyler Ross, Lauren Velez, Reno Wilson and Bruno Gunn in the cast, is produced by Man Of Action Entertainment, Skip Williamson, Cole Payne, “Crank” co-director Mark Neveldine and SLIPKNOT manager Cory Brennan.

Coates told Entertainment Weekly about working with Crahan:

“He’s crazy. We hit it off from the get-go. We had dinner, and he truly believes that we’ve worked together before in some other universe. Sure, alright, sure. He was ready to learn and share, and he had an incredible kinetic energy. He’s ferociously talented.”

Regarding his vision for the film, Crahan told the 103.9 The Bear radio station in South Bend, Indiana:

“I follow the story. That was my biggest thing. Everybody needs to know… I wanted to represent the story. That was my first prize — to make sure that it has justice. That people that are in love with the comic book and in love with the writer watch the movie and go, ‘Yup. That was the story. And Clown brought the visual and brought these crazy outfits and this crazy way of acting and these techniques.’ So I think the world’s gonna like it.”
