Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper teaming up for edgy action comedy


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: With all due respect to Kevin Smith, this buddy-cop comedy doesn’t sound like a cop out.

Ryan Reynolds – who seems to be in everything nowadays – reportedly will team with Bradley Cooper of “The A-Team” and “The Hangover” for an edgy, action-comedy penned by “Up In the Air” scribe, Sheldon Turner.

The Hollywood Reporter says the story will follow two San Francisco cops whose dads also were partners on the force. When the sons are stumped by a tough case, the older detectives are forced out of retirement to help apprehend the villains.

The article goes on to say that this script once was set up for Swayne “The Rock” Johnson under the headline “Blowback.” Like every other buddy-cop concept being pitched around Hollywood, it is being compared to “Lethal Weapon.” Maybe they should ask original “Lethal Weapon” writer Shane Black to punch up the finished script?

No word on who might be cast as the retired, older cops. Might we suggest Bruce Willis? He’s the only other actor besides Reynolds who’s seemingly up for every role under the sun these days. Why not add one more?
