There’ve been a few photos from the set of the big screen adaptation of the comic R.I.P.D., but now we have our first official look at Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds as the two main characters in the cool sounding fantasy crime thriller. Here is a description of the story:
“Nick is dead — at least, that’s how he remembers it — and teams up with another deceased detective, a gunslinger from the Old West (played by Jeff Bridges), to work for the elite task force, the Rest In Peace Department (hence the title), to track down the dead on Earth. (Due to overpopulation, some unsettled spirits haven’t gone where they’re supposed to, and are hiding out). Technically, R.I.P.D. officers (who are overseen by Mary-Louise Parker) aren’t allowed to kill anyone living, and aren’t supposed to interact with anyone from their previous lives, but Nick is haunted by the fact that he was murdered by another cop (played by Kevin Bacon), and can’t let it go.”
R.I.P.D. also stars Kevin Bacon, James Hong, Marisa Miller, Mary-Louise Parker, and Stephanie Szostak. It’s set to hit theaters on July 19, 2013.
