According to Variety, New Line is crafting the action-comedy Ride Along as a starring vehicle for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Ryan Reynolds.

Roger Kumble has just been set to direct the film, and he will do a rewrite of a Greg Coolidge script to tailor the pic to the stars.

Johnson will play a tough cop who tries to halt a budding romance between his sister and a fellow schoolteacher.

Johnson, who currently can be seen in Be Cool, next stars as a football coach in the Sony drama Gridiron Gang.

Reynolds recently starred for New Line in Blade 3, and he just wrapped the Kumble-directed "Just Friends" for the studio. Reynolds will next be seen in MGM and Dimension remake The Amityville Horror.
