Jeff Bridges Up for R.I.P.D.?

 Jeff Bridges may joining the cast of Universal Pictures’ supernatural action film R.I.P.D. (short for "Rest In Peace Department"), Deadline reports.

The project, based on Peter Lenkov’s Dark Horse comic about a police department of the dead, will be directed by Robert Schwentke (RED) and is still planned to star Ryan Reynolds, though some concern about his busy schedule already caused Zach Galifianakis to exit the production.

Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi are writing the screenplay with Mike Richardson, founder and President of Dark Horse, producing alongside Lawrence Gordon and Neal Moritz.
