Seven Days producer Neal Moritz revealed that Ryan Reynolds (Amityville Horror) will be toplining R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department), Universal Pictures’ adaptation of the Dark Horse comic book being directed by David Dobki, reports Collider. He also added that the most recent script was penned by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay (Clash of the Titans) and that it will be a PG-13 buddy comedy (sweet!). Reynolds would play a cop named Rick Cruz who just died. Shooting is planned for January. The project was first announced back in March of 2008. You can get the plot crunch by reading below.
“Welcome to the Rest In Peace Department–the devoted, yet dead, officers of divine law enforcement “patrolling the deadbeat. . . reporting to one boss.” Yep–THAT boss. Nick Cruz died an untimely death, at the height of his personal and professional life. Why did he join the R.I.P.D.? 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.”
