Universal Pictures want to bring R.I.P.D. (which stands for Rest In Peace Department), Peter Lenkov's Dark Horse comic about a police department of the dead, to the big screen. The supernatural action film will be directed by Robert Schwentke (who brought us RED). Actor Ryan Reynolds got the lead role as Nick Cruz. The film should be released sometime in 2012.
Producer Neal Moritz said about the upcoming movie RIPD:
"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."
I wonder who's going to play as Ryan Reynolds' partner in the movie RIPD. Any idea?
Anyway, more information about the movie R.I.P.D. soon!
