C.O.P.S. Dream Casting: Fighting Crime In A Future Time. Part One
Part One: It’s Crime Fighting Time.
Based on the 1988 action figure line C.O.P.S. ‘N’ Crooks, C.O.P.S. was a main staple of Saturday morning cartoons, living on in reruns through most of the ’90s. However, the show’s name was later changed to CyberCOPS, after the debut of the reality show Cops (bad boys, bad boys). The cast consisted of the most masculine officers of the law hands could draw, from Beat Cops to Texas Rangers, working the streets of Empire City in the not-so-distant future of 2020 (they even had an RCMP Mountie, Agent Yukon, for a single episode). Their nemesis? Big Boss, a sizable crime lord who rules with a literal iron fist, aided by henchmen with names like Buttons McBoomBoom, Ms. Demeanour, and Turbo Tu-Tone.
We here at DMC want C.O.P.S. revived as a motion picture spectacular, more importantly as a Todd Philips (Hangover, Old School) comedy, full of over-sized personalities and crazy Empire City scenarios (and maybe even a Mike Tyson cameo).
