Universal has released a new series of promotional material for director Robert Schwentke’s R.I.P.D. The film is an adaptation of the comic of the same name and centers around a recently slain cop (Ryan Reynolds) who joins a team of undead police officers working for the ‘Rest in Peace Department’ and attempts to track down the man who murdered him.
It’s tough to ignore the comparisons to Men In Black, but everything looks fun, especially Bridges as a Lebowski-like cowboy.
The cast includes Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak and Marissa Miller.
Featurette – ‘A Look Inside’
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and produced by Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious series, I Am Legend), Mike Richardson (Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army) and Michael Fottrell (Fast & Furious series, Live Free or Die Hard).
