First Look: Ryan Reynolds & Jeff Bridges Drawing Guns in 'R.I.P.D.'
There's a good chance you might have forgotten that a film called R.I.P.D. starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges was on the way, but the film still seems to be slated for release this summer. The first trailer should be arriving anytime now, but in the meantime, we have the first look photo from the film featuring Reynolds and Bridges with their cool guns drawn, not to mention a kick-ass mustache for The Dude himself.. For those who aren't aware, the film follows a recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers from the Rest in Peace Department and attempts to find the man who murdered him. Look below!
Robert Schwentke (RED) directs R.I.P.D., written by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay (Clash of the Titans, Aeon Flux) and based on Peter M. Lenkov's graphic novel of the same name. Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) was gunned down in the line of duty at the height of his personal and professional life. Now he's traded 100 years of service to R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department) in exchange for a shot at solving his own murder. Unfortunately, his search will take him to Hell and back with the grizzled Roy Pulsipher (Jeff Bridges) at his side. Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker also star in the Universal Pictures film arriving on July 19th.

Jeff Bridges is so in character. Don't like the guns though.

LMAO! When is Hollywood going to finally realize; Ryan Reynolds can't do gritty and tough.

I thought he did pretty well in Amityville.

and smokin aces, buried

Shit, Smokin Aces, of course. How did I forget that one? haven't seen Buried, but my girlfriend did and said it was one the most emotionally draining movies she'd seen. Said he was fantastic.

Smokin aces is still one of my favorite Ryan Reynolds movies

Pfft, I thought by now it was pretty clear that Ryan Reynolds can do anything. The Nines, Smoking Aces, Amityville, Buried; he's not Van Wilder anymore. He shed that skin a long time ago. Sure, he'll always be best as a snarky, sarcastic but lovable smartass, but he has proven more than once that he is absolutely capable of carrying gritty and dramatic roles.

The guns look like 3 shades of shit, but I hope this does well. I've been hoping to see Reynolds in a good film since Two Guys and a Girl

The guns look ridiculous, but is there maybe an explanation, anyone read the comicbook?

Any movie with the Dude in it is good enough for me... IN !!

"..written by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay (Clash of the Titans, Aeon Flux)" :(, this saddens me.

"It's sort of like Men In Black mixed with Ghostbusters." ??

"Now he's traded a 100 of service to the R.I.P.D." - Uh? Pardon?
