Uni’s ‘R.I.P.D.’ Seeking New Director

A quick news brief this morning via the LA Times who reports that there has been some movement (backwards) on Universal Pictures’ live-action adaptation of R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department). They report that David Dobki will no longer direct, and will serve as produce at most. They also add that McG nearly took the reigns until Fox pushed forward with another project (thank heavens). At this point, Uni is searching for a director, putting the latest comic book adaptation in trouble. If the movie goes, Reynolds would play a cop named Rick Cruz who just died.
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.
