Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper are attached to co-star in an untitled action comedy written by Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air). Per Risky Business, “The story follows two friends, who are also San Francisco cops, whose fathers were once partners on the police force. The older generation is forced out of retirement to help their sons crack a case, with typically antagonistic results.” Risky adds that the flick “is meant to have an updated Lethal Weapon flavor that plays into edgier R-rated territory.”
Reynolds will next be seen in the thriller Buried and the superhero movie Green Lantern. He’s set to begin shooting the comedy The Change-Up with Jason Bateman, and is also attached to comic-book movies Deadpool and R.I.P.D., and the spy-thriller Safe House with Denzel Washington. As for Cooper, he’ll be seen in theaters next year in the sci-fi thriller The Dark Fields. He’s also set to star in The Hangover 2 and an untitled comedy-drama based on a pitch from writer Allen Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps).
