The story, which is set in a hard-edged Lethal Weapon vein, centers on two best buds, Cooper and Reynolds, who are both on San Francisco's police force. Their fathers were also partners in the SFPD. The dads come out of retirement to help their sons work on a case, and much butting of heads ensues.
The story was originally pitched as Blowback a few years ago, with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the lead. Big step up here!
No word on who will play the dads, but given the two leads already announced, I would expect big names in those roles as well. Who do you think would be a good fit? My dream casting would be Carl Weathers and Billy Dee Williams. (Also, did you know those two starred together in a 1990 movie called Dangerous Passion? I didn't until now.)
