Based on the Dark Horse graphic novel mini-series of the same name, R.I.P.D. has got a long way to go before it wins me over. And it’s not for lack of trying. They’ve got a great cast to bring this story to… death. While the actors seem like they’re having fun in this over-the-top first cousin to Men In Black, there’s a strong sense of feeling like we’ve seen all this before.
R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (RED, Flightplan) and is scripted by Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi. Joining Reynolds and Bridges are Mary Louise-Parker, Robert Knepper, Kevin Bacon, James Hong, Stephanie Szostak and Marisa Miller.
It’s set to hit theatres July 19th.
The Dark Horse comic R.I.P.D. is adapted by Universal Pictures with this fantasy crime film focusing on a newly deceased cop (Ryan Reynolds) who’s drafted into a squad of zombie cops that battle the supernatural. Red’s Robert Schwentke directs, with Jeff Bridges co-starring as his partner and Kevin Bacon playing the villain.
