The short film is a sequel to a short comedy film from 2015 titled 'Taylor & Barinov'. The film focused on 2 idiot cops from the 1970's stuck in today's world, investigating sub par cases.

The film was self aware and a homage to 70's Cop Shows such as 'Starsky & Hutch' and 'Hawaii Five-0'. However, since this was a student film it was very ametuer, and I'm looking to make the sequel so much better in terms of the writing, the comedy, and the story. While also keeping it on quiet a small scale due to budgeting.

There has already been a draft of the script written, but it's nowhere near finished or perfect. The story keeps faithful to the tone and spirit of the first film, but I know if more time, effort and talent is put into it then it can be so much better and produce an overall great short film.

With the first film being produced in the spirit of classic 70's Cop Shows, I want the sequel to be produced in the spirit of Black Comedy, Buddy Cop, and Film/Neo-Noir films such as 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang', 'The Nice Guys', 'The Last Boy Scout', and 'Lethal Weapon'. All films involving Shane Black, either as a writer, director, or both.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Currently in the middle of making a short film for my final project at Uni. But once I'm finished with that at the end of April, I want to be developing the script from May through to July, and hopefully start shooting in August, or even earlier if everything goes well.
