R.I.P.D. tells the story about a recently slain cop who joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace department and tries to find the man who murdered him. The film is scheduled for release in July 2013 in the USA. No release date has been announced for South Africa yet.
The film is directed by German born writer / director Robert Schwentke (who also directed 2010’s Red, 2009’s The Time Traveler’s Wife and 2005’s Flight Plan). R.I.P.D. features appearances by Kevin Bacon, Ryan Reynolds, Mary Louise-Parker, Jeff Bridges, James Hong, Marisa Miller and others. R.I.P.D. is based on the Rest in Peace Department comic book by Peter M. Lenkov.
This Action Comedy promises to be one of the coolest films of 2013. I like the concept and I’m also excited to see what the film makers have up their sleeve in the CGI department. Judging by the trailer the film is going to be an action-packed and fun-filled ride. Don’t take my word for it though, check out the trailer below.
