Universal Pictures is finally gearing up to get their live-action adaptation of R.I.P.D. into production. The studio has locked in a June 28, 2013 release, meaning they expect this to be a big summer movie.
It’s a start with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges starring, and Bloody learned EXCLUSIVELY that the studio is highly interested in landing Jodie Foster as “Proctor”. Given that she’s already committed to District 9 director Neill Blomkam’s Elysium, it’ll be interesting to see if she ends up playing with the undead.
Robert Schwentke is directing R.I.P.D. for Uni — “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.”
