Collider.com is reporting that Ryan Reynolds will star in a live-action film adaptation of the graphic novel R.I.P.D. "Rest in Peace Department", written by Peter Lenkov (with illustrations by Lucan Marangon, and Randy Emberlin). In 2006 when producer Neal Moritz announced the project, it was reported that it had been in development at Universal for some time; production is now expected to begin early next year.
R. I. P. D. was originally published as a series of four monthly comics by Dark Horse, from October 1999 through January 2000. The cover depicted to the right and the information link is for the collected works.
About R.I.P.D. (from the publisher): 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!
