Synopsis & Stills for Anchor Bay’s Officer Down

Anchor Bay have provided pictures and a synopsis for their upcoming action thriller “Officer Down”. Love the sound of the story and the fact that the character is called Detective Callahan.

Directed by Brian A. Miller and written by John Chase, Officer Down boasts a stellar cast including Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies, Zaytoun, The Immortals), Academy-Award® nominee James Woods (Straw Dogs, Too Big To Fail, The Virgin Suicides), Stephen Lang (Avatar, Conan The Barbarian), Dominic Purcell (Straw Dogs, Killer Elite), AnnaLynne McCord (CW’s “90210,” HBO’s “Nip/Tuck,” Excision), Walton Goggins (FX’s “Justified,” Django Unchained), David Boreanaz (Fox’s “Bones”) and rap superstar Soulja Boy in his feature film debut.

One year ago, dirty cop Detective Callahan (Dorff) was shot in a drug bust gone wrong and saved by a stranger, giving Callahan a second chance to clean up his life. But when the stranger finally comes forward, seeking revenge against the men responsible for a string of assaults on young women at a local strip club, Callahan must go rogue to find the attacker in an effort to hide how his own past played a part in these crimes. His desperation to find the attacker and cover his tracks takes him down a violent road of deception and fraud. Can he play the “good cop” and track down the assailant, while still keeping his reputation clean?
