Universal have set a July 19, 2013 release for the Dark Horse Comics' adaptation, "R.I.P.D" ("Rest In Peace Department"), starring Oscar winner Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds, for "Red" director Robert Schwentke.
"It’s about two cops," said producer Neil Moritz about 'R.I.P.D.', "one recently dead (Reynolds) and a gunslinger (Bridges) who’s been dead for hundreds of years, that work in the 'Rest in Peace' department - which is the police department of the dead. It takes place on a normal day and it’s about trying to keep the spirits quiet."
Reynolds will play 'Nick Cruz', a police officer shot dead in the line of duty, then recruited for the "Ripd", dedicated to tracking down souls who refuse to pass on.
