Universal Targets "RIPD"

Development continues on a Universal motion picture adaptation of Dark Horse Comics graphic novel series "RIPD", with Ryan Reynolds ("Green Lantern") attached to star for director Robert Schwentke.

"It’s about two cops," said producer Neil Moritz about "RIPD" .
"One recently dead and a gunslinger who’s been dead for hundreds of years that work in the 'Rest in Peace' department - which is the police department of the dead. It takes place on a normal day and it’s about trying to keep the spirits quiet."

Reynolds will play 'Nick Cruz', a police officer shot dead in the line of duty, then recruited for the "RIPD", dedicated to tracking down souls who refuse to pass on.
