Ryan Reynolds Signs Up for R.I.P.D.?


Not so fast…

Update: Deadline reports Reynolds passed on the project.

Somewhere after Green Lantern and his various other commitments, Ryan Reynolds is going to star in R.I.P.D., based on the comic book.

Neil Moritz – of the Fast and the Furious franchise – is going to produce for director David Dobkin and Universal. Considering I’ve always thought Reynolds would be ideal for a Dead Heat remake, I guess this will have to do. After all, the storyline sounds close enough: In R.I.P.D., Reynolds would play a cop who is murdered and returns from the dead to find his killer.

Mortiz tells Collider shooting may begin in January.
