The LA Times is reporting that German director Robert Schwentke (Flightplan, Red) has met on, and is being considered for, the director’s chair on R.I.P.D., the adaptation of the Dark Horse graphic novel that will star Ryan Reynolds. R.I.P.D. has been a priority for studio Universal and Dark Horse, but, as we reported last week, it hit a speed bump when favored directorial candidate McG opted to take a different movie, the romantic comedy This Means War. They add that Universal wants to shoot R.I.P.D., a crime movie about dead cops patrolling the underworld, next summer, when Reynolds has an open slot in his schedule. But it wants a director to begin work pretty much right away on the effects- and design-heavy picture, heightening the urgency of the quest.
