Slipknot’s Shawn Crahan makes his directorial debut with the ultra-violent genre flick Officer Downe, and right now we have the first official one-sheet for you.

From the Press Release:
Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that they have acquired U.S. rights to OFFICER DOWNE, the debut feature of M. Shawn Crahan (aka “Clown”), co-founder and visual architect of Grammy-winning and multi-platinum band Slipknot. The film, starring Kim Coates (“Sons of Anarchy”), will be released in theaters and On Demand November 18.

Adapted from the 2010 graphic novel by Joe Casey and Chris Burnham, OFFICER DOWNE concocts a hyper-real Los Angeles for the story of a savage LA policeman who is repeatedly resurrected and returned to active duty via dark science technology. When a rookie officer named Gable is recruited as back-up, he discovers there’s much more to the titular super-cop than a mindless law enforcement drone warring against a twisted rouges gallery of over-the-top super-villains.

Directed by Crahan, OFFICER DOWNE was written by Joe Casey and produced by Mark Neveldine, Skip Williamson, Cole Payne, and Casey. Executive producers were Cory Brennan and Glenn D. Feig.

The deal was negotiated by Magnolia SVP of Acquisitions John Von Thaden with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.

He walks the eternal beat… and delivers the eternal beat-down! Much more than man… he is policeman! It’s hyper-violence on the mean city streets… Not even death itself can stop this powerhouse of justice! You’ve never experienced “command presence” like this! This is one cop that’ll keep coming back for more… even from beyond the grave!
