Ryan Reynolds to Star in "R.I.P.D."

By our guest blogger, Matt Jussim

Ryan Reynolds will star in yet another comic adaptation, this time the supernatural buddy action/comedy "R.I.P.D."

According to Collider:  Reynolds will play a young cop murdered in the line of duty who agrees to enlist in "God's police force" for a chance to catch his killer. The action follows a regular day in the life of him and his partner, a gunslinger who himself has been dead for centuries.

Reynolds has quickly found himself as the go-to guy for comic book adaptations. He played "Deadpool" in "X Men Origins: Wolverine," which is also set to get a spinoff film, and he will play Hal Jordan in the upcoming "Green Lantern."

Neal Moritz will produce the PG-13 feature and filming commences in January after Reynolds wraps the R-rated body-swap comedy "The Change-Up," which starts filming in October.
