Jeff Bridges to Join Ryan Reynolds in "RIPD" Buddy Comedy

Posted: April 29th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jeff Bridges to Join Ryan Reynolds in "RIPD" Buddy ComedySubmit Comment
Ryan Reynolds was supposed to choose between a "Deadpool" movie and a PG-13 buddy action comedy called "RIPD (Rest In Peace Department)," based on a Dark Horse graphic novel.

He ended up choosing "RIPD," which will be directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and set to begin shooting in the summer. Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) quickly signed on to co-star.

Due to the possibility of "Green Lantern 2," which could make Reynolds' schedule unpredictable, Galifianakis dropped out. Deadline has now learned that the actor is being replaced with Jeff Bridges (Tron Legacy, True Grit), who is currently in negotiations.

"RIPD" revolves around two officers - one recently dead (who would do anything to get back to his wife) and a gunslinger who's been dead for hundreds of years. Reynolds is set to play the recently-murdered policeman Nick Cruz, and Bridges will play the other lead.

Looks like my interest in this just went up a bit.

I guess he's going to play the gunslinger like Rooster "The Dude" Cogburn.

This would only work really well if Peter Jackson applied his 'The Frighteners' film technique, otherwise we'll get Bridges' decent performance juxtaposed next to Reynold's crappy camp humor. It's like Ryan Reynolds is the white Will Smith or something.

But good to see Zach ride far, far off into the sunset on this one.

WATSON is very upset right now that his idol Zach left the project and was replaced by a real actor.

Wait a second... Zach G-spot was to play a gunslinger and is being replaced by The Dude himself?

Great for the movie bad for world's karma.
