The “Iron Man” writing team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway is writing an untitled cop-actioner formerly known as “Blowback” and “Gen Gap” that has been in development for nearly a decade.
Dwayne Johnson was rumored to be involved in 2005 when the project was originally set with Neal Moritz. Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper had been reported as attached to the project in 2010. No actors are currently attached.
In 2010, Sheldon Turner (“Up in the Air”) had worked on a script for the film, in which a pair of San Francisco police officers are forced to work on a case with their fathers, who were partners on the SFPD.
Moritz is producing with Ori Marmur through Moritz’ Original Films. Chris Bender, J.C. Spink and Jake Weiner are exec producing through Benderspink.
Moritz, best known for the “Fast and Furious” franchise, is also producing action-thriller “Shadow Run” for Sony with Brad Anderson recently signed to direct.
Benderspink is producing “Horrible Bosses 2,” “We’re the Millers” and “Vacation” for New Line. Bender and Spink were exec producers on “The Hangover” trilogy.
Marcum and Holloway are repped by CAA.
