Plan B has lined up several sessions at the pub with new co-star Ray Winstone to make sure their on-screen chemistry is spot on.
The Cockney pair will play DI Jack Regan and DS George Carter in a film version of TV hit The Sweeney.
Plan B, whose real name is Ben Drew, told The Sun: "Me and Ray have known each other for years so there's a few sessions planned.
"We start filming in November so we'll meet up before that in the pub. It's where all the best business is done."
The rapper admitted he is nervous about the challenge of playing "a copper who is likeable".
"When they asked me to do it, I was as surprised as anyone," he added.
The police duo were played by John Thaw and Dennis Waterman in the original cult TV series.
