Ryan Reynolds is the new dead guy fighting the criminal dead alongside Jeff "The Dude" Bridges in the new movie in R.I.P.D. Check out the new trailer, poster, and images from the new movie based on a Dark Horse Comic.R.I.P.D. brings together Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as crime fighting angels sent to Earth to capture the monstrous dead roaming among the living as the Rest In Peace Police Department. Sound a bit like Men in Black, except for the heavenly part? Reynolds leaves the wise-cracking to his new partner Roy Pusifer, played by Bridges who hasn't been this fun since his role as "The Dude" in The Big Lebowski. Mary-Louise Parker seems to be the highlight in this first look. And why can't Mary-Louise Parker be in more movies. She's got a natural comedy flair that's sorely missed since Weeds.
R.I.P.D. comes to life on screen July 19, 2013.
R.I.P.D. Official Synopsis
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.
Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.
Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance...or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.
R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and produced by Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious series, I Am Legend), Mike Richardson (Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army) and Michael Fottrell (Fast & Furious series, Live Free or Die Hard).
