Jeff Bridges in talks to star in R.I.P.D. opposite Ryan Reynolds
Jeff Bridges is currently in talks with Universal Pictures to star opposite Ryan Reynolds in the Robert Schwentke-directed supernatural comedy R.I.P.D. The film centers "on a police force comprised of undead officers," based on the Peter Lenkov comic. Zach Galifianakis was attached to star, but was forced to drop out over uncertainty of when Reynolds could star because of a likely Green Lantern sequel. Bridges is set to star in The Seventh Son for Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures. We will keep you posted when the casting is finalized.
I think that Bridges, while older than Galifianakis, is great for the role. He has a great handle for comedy, as you know from seeing The Big Lebowski. I think that he would be great opposite Reynolds and am interested to this film.
