Zach Galifianakis is in talks to star in an upcoming Robert Schwentke‘s adaptation of the Dark Horse comic titled R.I.P.D.
We already had a little chat about this Universal Pictures’ buddy action comedy, so you know it actually means Rest In Peace Department and you know that Ryan Reynolds will star in the flick as well…
Here’s the R.I.P.D. official synopsis:
“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!”
Producer Neal Moritz already revealed that the movie is “about two cops, one recently dead and a gunslinger who’s been dead for hundreds of years who 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.”
So, Reynolds will play Nick Cruz, recently murdered and out for revenge, while Galifianakis would play Roy Powell, or if you prefer “a gunslinger who’s been dead for hundreds of years.”
From The Hangover guy to the gunslinger guy? What do you think about this cast?
