Anytime I look at a film, I usually give it the most value based on its entertainment factor. There are tons of films out there that may not be great, but we happen to pop those ones in our DVD player more often to the Academy Award winners. A couple examples that come to my mind are Bad Boys II and The Rundown. Each film may not be a touch of class, but both know how to entertain the viewer. Bad Boys II featured antics from the duo Martin Lawrence and Will Smith while The Rundown featured the same from Seann William Scott and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Placing a comedic duo in an action adventure setting just seems to be the way to go.

Well, it looks as though The Rock definitely likes this style of film, as he has signed on to do the action / adventure / comedy titled Blowback. But who is his new partner in crime? None other than Van Wilder's Ryan Reynolds. Let the laughs begin.

Blowback Developments

According to THR, Touchstone Pictures has recently picked up Blowback, a buddy action comedy with Ryan Reynolds and The Rock set to star. What is Blowback about? Hard to say considering that a script for the film hasn't even been started yet. What we do know is that Blowback will be something similar to the Lethal Weapon series, where the characters are buddy San Francisco police officers.

However, expect Blowback to be a lot more comedic that Lethal Weapon, as the film will be produced by Tapestry Films' Andrew Panay, Peter Abrams and Robert Levy, who are coming off the success of Wedding Crashers.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is currently busy working on his next film, DOOM, based off of the best - selling FPS video game. Ryan Reynolds is still with Alanis Morissette [hmmmm, no] and currently has two films, Just Friends and Ride Along, coming our way for 2006.

Somewhere Seann William Scott sits jealous that The Rock found a new buddy for buddy - comedy.

Stay tuned for updates.
