As R.I.P.D. started shooting this month, we’ve been able to bring you looks at Universal’s adaption of this Dark Horse comic by Peter Lenkov with behind the scenes pictures of the production. We got some great sneak peeks of Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon, and Jeff Bridges on set and in costume.
Now, we’ve got a few more pics to share courtesy of Zimbio of Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as undead cops of the Rest In Peace Department in action and armed with comic book-esque guns. Get a load of these!

In casting news for R.I.P.D., Bloody Disgusting reports that up and coming actor Tobias Segal (Petunia, Rocky Balboa) has joined the cast though the role he will play is not known yet.

The story of R.I.P.D. follows a cop, Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds), killed in the line of duty, who is recruited by a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department, a police force comprised of ghosts who battle spirits unready to depart this world. He then tries to find the man who murdered him.
R.I.P.D. is slated to hit theaters on June 28th, 2013.
