Robert Schwentke's 'R.I.P.D.' is less than a couple of weeks away from arriving in US theatres and both its stars Ryan Reynolds ('Blade: Trinity') and Jeff Bridges ('TRON: Legacy') have been on hand to take part in a new featurette from the flick to discuss their roles and the world of 'R.I.P.D.'. The movie is of course based on the Dark Horse comic book authored by Peter Lenkov and looks to be somewhere between 'Men in Black' and 'Ghostbusters'. Kevin Bacon ('Super'), Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker ('Weeds'), Marisa Miller and James Hong ('Big Trouble in Little China') all co-star. Check out the new clip below.
"Nick is dead -- at least, that's how he remembers it -- and teams up with another deceased detective, a gunslinger from the Old West (played by Jeff Bridges), to work for the elite task force, the Rest In Peace Department (hence the title), to track down the dead on Earth. (Due to overpopulation, some unsettled spirits haven't gone where they're supposed to, and are hiding out). Technically, R.I.P.D. officers (who are overseen by Mary-Louise Parker) aren't allowed to kill anyone living, and aren't supposed to interact with anyone from their previous lives, but Nick is haunted by the fact that he was murdered by another cop (played by Kevin Bacon), and can't let it go."
'R.I.P.D.' lands in US theatres from 19 July and here in the UK from 20 September.
