Los Angeles: Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper are all set to star together in an untitled action-comedy, written by Sheldon Turner of the `Up in the Air` fame.
The film is about 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.
