Jeff Bridges is final negotiations to star opposite Ryan Reynolds in R.I.P.D., Universal’s supernatural action comedy about a ghost-busting police force.
Bridges steps into the role that was to have been occupied by Zach Galifianakis, but the comedian ultimately never sealed the deal.
The project is based on the Dark Horse comic, and Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson is producing with Neal Moritz and David Dobkin.
R.I.P.D. follows a murdered cop (Reynolds) who is recruited to work in the Rest in Peace Department, a police force comprised of ghosts who battle spirits unready to depart this world.?
Bridges will play Reynolds’ partner, a wise-cracking officer who’s been hunting spirits since the 1800s.
Robert Schwentke is directing. Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay wrote the script.
