Things are really moving on Robert Schwentke's R.I.P.D., the comedy-horror flick starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds about undead officers. It recently got a villain in the form of Kevin Bacon, and now it's looking to bring some much-needed femininity into the mix.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that up-and-comer Stephanie Szostak (DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS) is in negotiations to play Reynolds’ wife, who can sense that he is still around and to whom he is trying to communicate with in regards to his murder.
Here's the synopsis for the graphic novel R.I.P.D. is based on: Welcome to the Rest In Peace Department -- the devoted, yet dead, officers of divine law enforcement "patrolling the deadbeat...reporting to one boss." Yep -- THAT boss. Nick Cruz was murdered by an unknown assailent, at the height of his personal and professional life. Now he's traded a hundred years of service to the R.I.P.D. in exchange for a shot at finding who killed him. Unfortunately his search will take him to Hell and back -- literally!
R.I.P.D. comes out on JUNE 28, 2013.
