Marisa Miller Meets "R.I.P.D."

Sports Illustrated, Victoria's Secret super model Marisa Miller has now been added to the cast of the big screen comic book adaptation "R.I.P.D".

The Universal Pictures production, based on the Dark Horse Comics graphic novel series "R.I.P.D.", stars Ryan Reynolds ("Green Lantern") and Jeff Bridges ("Tron: Legacy"), for director Robert Schwentke ("Red").

Actor James Hong ("Big Trouble In Little China") will play the character 'Grandpa Chen'.

"It’s about two cops," said producer Neil Moritz about 'R.I.P.D.', "one recently dead (Reynolds) and a gunslinger (Bridges) 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.

The new film will be released in 2013.
