Story by Jack Foley

JEFF Bridges is poised to star alongside Ryan Reynolds in supernatural action comedy R.I.P.D.

The Oscar winning actor would step into a role originally occupied by Zach Galifianakis, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the Dark Horse comics, R.I.P.D follows a murdered cop (played by Reynolds) who is recruited to work in the Rest in Peace Department, a ghostbusting unit of ghosts who battle spirits unready to depart the world.

Bridges would play Reynolds’ partner, a wise-cracking veteran who has been hunting spirits since the 1800s.

Robert Schwentke is directing for Universal.
