Wanting a new spin on the cop movie? Feel like the usual maverick detectives aren't cutting it?

Then this is for you. Michaelangelo. Abraham Lincoln. Together at last in 'History Cops'!

Unfortunately, this won't be coming to a cinema near you because it's actually an exclusive extra from the Blu-ray release of 'The LEGO® Movie'.

[Could Marvel superheroes appear in 'The LEGO Movie 2'?]

In this exclusive Seventies-style spoof, the former President and the legendary painter hook up to defeat the evil Medici gang in the modern day. Cue civil war jokes and a novel new use for Honest Abe's hat.

Of course, now we hope this really does happen. Anyone fancy putting up the money? We're sure Michaelangelo will paint you something nice as a thank you.

The LEGO Movie proved to be a huge hit with audiences earlier this year and a sequel has already been announced for 2017. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, whose latest film '22 Jump Street' is in cinemas now, will not return to direct the LEGO sequel, but will stay on board as producers.

'The LEGO® Movie' arrives onto Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray™ and DVD on 21 July and available on Digital Download from 7 July. https://www.facebook.com/TheLEGOMovie
