Universal Pictures has bumped back the release of Robert Schwentke’s comic book adaptation R.I.P.D. by a few weeks.
The film, originally slated to open June 28, will now hit theaters July 19, 2013, one week after Warners releases Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim.
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker and Marisa Miller, the pic follows the crew of the “Rest In Peace Department”.
“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.“
