Today Lloyd came across a trailer for a film which we thought might just be to the taste of some of you guys, as well as having the potential for a cool game setting. A cop film with a serious twist; R.I.P.D. Rest In Peace Department.
Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges play undead police men, working for the Rest In Peace Department, a supernatural law enforcement agency which protects the world of the living from the dead who escape judgement.
So it essentially seems like MIB meets Constantine.
The film is based upon the comic of the same name by Peter Lenkov and published by Dark Horse. I have a certain love for the less main stream comics, such as Hellboy, Chew etc. So whenever I hear of one becoming a film I get really excited. The setting itself looks very interesting and could make for a cool RPG. Sort of like the World of Darkness games, only by the look of it with a fair side more combat.
It is good to see actors like Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds being cast in this. Both are good actors who should do the roles justice. Let’s just hope this doesn’t end up like Reynolds’ last foray into comic films.
