A twist on 'Good Cop, Bad Cop'? Or something more? Interesting.

I'd watch that. Being an ex cop myself I'm interested to see how that plays out and what screen writing techniques you use.

Timely theme with the country raging over police brutality issues. A one room set sounds more like a play, unless replete with flashbacks (like The Usual Suspects). The logline could be condensed into one sentence, perhaps: ‘Two cops searching for a killer rough up a suspect who drives wedge between them in a lethal psychological battle.’

This coming from me as a current Cop of 23 years - The story seems solid but a little cliche. Why would they allow a criminal

to drive a wedge through them? As far as the beating to get information - this is also cliche and simply does not happen as often as you think. Times are different and we as Cops just don’t get away with beating innocent people in order to gather information. It would be more plausible if he was the Cop killer but it sounds like he just has information about it.

Watching a movie like this from a Cop’s POV- it’s just not plausible especially in today’s environment.

However, I see that it’s in Pre production so congratulations ...!
