Producers of cancelled BBC America period drama Copper are considering turning the series into a movie, according to a U.S. report.
Last week (ends22Sep13), executives at the network announced the show had been scrapped after two seasons, but the creators of the series are now considering keeping it alive with a movie adaptation, according to Deadline.com.
Producer Tom Fantana story work for the cancelled third season will reportedly set the plot for the movie, which would examine life in America after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
Copper premiered in 2012. It followed the story of Irish immigrant cop Kevin Corcoran living in New York City in the 1860s.
