Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper will soon share more than rugged good looks. They’ll split top billing on a buddy movie that’s being described as an edgier, R-rated version of the Lethal Weapon series.

The actors, both strong candidates for the title of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, will play cops in the as-yet-untitled action-comedy, in which they recruit their fathers – former police officers themselves – to crack a case, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Both leading men have been exploring the action side of Hollywood lately, with Cooper, 35, recently starring in The A-Team and Reynolds, 33, playing the title role in the upcoming superhero picture Green Lantern.
