Back in September of last year, we brought you the news about director Robert Schwentke (RED, Flightplan) being hired by Universal Pictures to direct the supernatural action film, R.I.P.D., a big-screen adaptation of Peter M. Lenkov’s graphic novel, published by Dark Horse Comics.
The movie will star Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern) as Nick Cruz, one half of a deceased cop duo as they patrol the streets looking to keep restless spirits from misbehaving. The cops are a rookie who has recently died and is looking for his killers, and a gunslinger who’s been on the job for centuries.
Now, The Wrap reports that the centuries-old gunslinger named Bo, will be portrayed by none other than Academy Award-winning actor, Jeff Bridges (TRON: Legacy, True Grit).
R.I.P.D. is slated to hit theaters in 2012.
