Ever hear of a little game called Bad Cop/Bad Cop? No? Understandable, as most cop-movie-loving audiences have long been acquainted with the concept of Good Cop/Bad Cop, an idea that John Michael McDonagh’s dark comedy “War on Everyone” pretty gleefully throws right out the metaphorical window.

“Likely Stories” is produced by Sid Gentle Films and will be directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the duo behind Nick Cave docu “20,000 Days on Earth.” Jarvis Cocker will score the four 30-minute stories, which will topline George MacKay (“Pride”), Tom Hughes (“The Game”), Johnny Vegas (“Moone Boy”), Kenneth Cranham (“Maleficent”) and Rita Tushingham (“Doctor Zhivago”).
