New ‘R.I.P.D’ Movie Trailer Offers Guns, Ghosts, Bridges And Reynolds

Universal Pictures has released a trailer for its upcoming supernatural action film R.I.P.D, based on the comic series by Peter Lenkov and Lucas Marangon, published by Dark Horse.

The upcoming film, starring comic book movie alums Jeff Bridges (Iron Man) and Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern/Blade Trinity, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), is about two deceased former-lawmen tasked by God to hunt down renegade ghosts hiding among the living as part of a secret organization known as the R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department). Check out the trailer after the jump.While the film is based on the 2003 comic by Lenkov and Marangon, Dark Horse relaunched the series in 2012 to prepare fans for the upcoming movie. A short story will be available in the Dark Horse Comics issue available on Free Comic Book Day (May 4), and a collected edition of the latest miniseries written by Lenkov and Jeremy Barlow and drawn by Tony Parker is solicited for release on May 22.

The full cast includes quite a few names that might be familiar to comic book movie fans, as Kevin Bacon (X-Men: First Class) and Mary-Louise Parker (RED) join Bridges and Reynolds. Directed by Robert Schwentke (RED) and written by Lenkov, Phil Hay (Aeon Flux) and Matt Manfredi (The Tuxedo), the film is planned for a July 17 release.
