R.I.P.D. is an upcoming 3D supernatural action-adventure film directed by German filmmaker 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). Based on the comic book Rest In Peace Department by Peter M. Lenkov, the film stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as Nick Walker and Roy Pulsipher, respectively. The supporting cast includes Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak, and Robert Knepper.
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.
