Last week we shared the first look at Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds in the ‘forever stuck in production hell’ R.I.P.D. Today, there’s a poster and a promise, from Collider, of a trailer to come this week. The poster features the two dead cops and smartly displays what the hell R.I.P.D. actually means, hopefully clearing up confusion over what this film is all about,
If you still find yourself a little lost, here again is the synopsis,
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 Stephanie Szostak, Marisa Miller, Mike O’Malley, James Hong, Robert Knepper and Tobias Segal.
I’ll reserve my judgement over whether or not I’m excited for this flick until I see the trailer. Which we’ll post as soon as its available. But judging from its premise and cast, I’m definitely intrigued. Whatcha guys thinking?
