Reynolds and Cooper to Star in Turner Action Comedy


Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper are attached to star in an untitled original action comedy written by Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air).

Risky Business says the film “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.”

Neal Moritz, Andrew Panay and Reynolds’ Dark Trick Films partner Jonathon Komack Martin are producing along with J.C. Spink and Chris Bender of Benderspink.

Panay and Turner first developed the pitch, then called “Blowback,” five years ago with Dwayne Johnson attached to one of the roles.
