The dude abides...
Late last month we heard rumblings that Academy Award winner Jeff "The Dude" Bridges had been eyeing a role in the big-screen adaptation of R.I.P.D. Well folks, it's now official!
According to The Wrap, Bridges will indeed join Ryan Reynolds in the supernatural buddy-cop film for Universal. He'll play the role of Roy, a member of the force that Zach Galifianakis was forced to bow out of last month.
Adapted from Peter M. Lenkov's comic book by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, R.I.P.D revolves around:
Two cops, one recently dead and a gunslinger who’s been dead for hundreds of years, work on the Rest In Peace Department - which is the police department of the dead. And they basically…it takes place on a normal day and it’s about trying to keep the dead quiet.
Robert Schwenke (RED, FLIGHTPLAN) is perched in the director's chair.
