Jeff Bridges Confirmed for R.I.P.D. Starring Role with Ryan Reynolds!


The Wrap has confirmed the news that Jeff Bridges will star alongside Ryan Reynolds in the Robert Schwentke-directed supernatural comedy R.I.P.D.

The project is based on the Dark Horse Comics four-issue miniseries of the same name, written by Peter M. Lenkov, and illustrated by Lucas Marangon and Randy Emberlin.

Bridges will play Roy, a veteran member of the police force.

Zach Galifianakis was previously in talks for the role, but pulled out of the production because there was some uncertainty whether Reynold would be able to fit the movie into his schedule, due to the option that WB have on him for Green Lantern 2.

The movie, being directed by Robert Schwentke, and Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson is producing with Neal Moritz and David Dobkin.

R.I.P.D. , which stands for Rest In Peace Department follows the story of Nick Cruz (Reynolds), who died an untimely death, at the height of his personal and professional life. Why did he join the R.I.P.D., the devoted, yet dead, officers of divine law enforcement? Well, not knowing the identity of his killer has left his soul a bit… restless. Now he hunts some of the most fiendish creatures, hoping for the chance to find out who set him up so he can get into heaven
