Producer and studio hopes that the film will start a franchise.
The main characters of the source (incidentally, an adaptation promises to be a freestyle, but not literal) – some New York City police officers who do not live quietly in retirement, until the city is ruled by crime. Cops are organizing a squad and with their own force are fighting the most dangerous and elusive criminals of New York.
