Ryan Reynolds is already signed on to star in the film adaptation of the comic series R.I.P.D, but his original co-star, Zach Galifianakis, had to drop out. It is being reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Universal Pictures is currently negotiating with Jeff Bridges to fill that role.

"R.I.P.D. follows a murdered cop (Reynolds) who is recruited to work in the Rest in Peace Department, a police force comprised of ghosts who battle spirits unready to depart this world.? ... Bridges will play Reynolds' partner, a wise-cracking officer who's been hunting spirits since the 1800s."

Robert Schwentke (Red) will be directing the film which is supposed to start shooting later this summer.
