Jeff Bridges Joins Ryan Reynolds in Ghost-Hunting, Buddy-Cop Comedy

Academy Award-winner Jeff Bridges is currently in final negotiations to star opposite Ryan Reynolds in an upcoming action-comedy about a supernatural police force.

R.I.P.D., based on a Dark Horse comic book of the same name, sees Reynolds portraying a murdered cop who is recruited to work as an officer of the Rest in Peace Department, a police force made up of ghosts who are charged with hunting down spirits unwilling to move on from our world.

Bridges will be filling the role of Reynolds’ wise-cracking partner, a spectre who has been hunting ghosts since the 1800s. The role was originally set for Zach Galifianakis, but the comedian failed to secure the deal.
